During the period May to August 1960, an Air Force scientific field party conducted earth science studies and tested a raised sand terrace, located about 224 km south of Station Nord, Northeast Greenland. The operation staged from Thule Air Force Base was climaxed by successful test Iandings on the terrace by C-119 and C-130 aircraft.
Significant data were obtained from related investigations on a typical arctic lake, ice-free soils, meteorology, engineering geology, geomorphology, and electrical resistivity of soils.
