  title={Revision of the gastropod family Cancellariidae from the Paleocene of Nuussuaq, West Greenland},
  author={Kai Ingemann Schnetler and Richard E. Petit},
The very rich mollusc fauna from the Paleocene deposits on the Nuussuaq peninsula (Greenland) contains 22 species of the gastropod family Cancellariidae. Seventeen new species are established, viz: Beuaphera nuussuaqensis n. gen et n. sp., Merica rosenkrantzi n. sp., Admetula kollmanni n. sp., Admetula eivindi n. sp., Admetula skoui n. sp., Admetula nuussuaqensis n. sp., Kroisbachia peeli n. sp., Bonellitia birgitteae n. sp., Sveltella loevstroemi n. sp., Sveltella tobiasseni n. sp., Brocchinia…

Palyno- and nannostratigraphic dating of the marine Paleocene succession in the Nuussuaq Basin, West Greenland

Correlation between palynostratigraphic and radiometric dating has in recent years caused problems in Paleogene deposits of the North Atlantic province (e.g. Storey et al. 1998). In order to address
