AbstractThe report outlines the distribution of permafrost and gas hydrates as determined from conventional well logs run in 151 wells in the Arctic Islands. Ice-bearing permafrost is interpreted to exist on land to depths ranging from 131 m to 860 m. Although it is also observed in the offshore the data is inadequate to map the occurrence accurately. Natural gas hydrates are interpreted in 90 of the 151 wells to depths of 1923 m.
