Exploring Greenland: Cold War Science and Technology on Ice
Palgrave Macmillan | Geology | Jun 13 2016 | ISBN-10: 1137596872 | 302 pages | pdf | 4.58 mb
Using newly declassified documents, this book explores why U.S. military leaders after World War II sought to monitor the far north and understand the physical environment of Greenland, a crucial territory of Denmark. It reveals a fascinating yet little-known realm of Cold War intrigue and a delicate diplomatic duet between a smaller state and a superpower amid a time of intense global pressures. Written by scholars in Denmark and the United States, this book explores many compelling topics. What led to the creation of the U.S. Thule Air Base in Greenland, one of the worlds largest, and why did the U.S. build a nuclear-powered city under Greenlands ice cap? How did Danish concern about sovereignty shape scientific research programs in Greenland? Also explored here: why did Denmarks most famous scientist, Inge Lehmann, became involved in research in Greenland, and what international reverberations resulted from the crash of a U.S. B-52 bomber carrying four nuclear weapons near Thule in January 1968?
