Rillenstein in Northwest Greenland
William E. Davies


Most papers on caverns and related solution phenomena deal with features that are of large size. A discussion of rillenstein, however, focuses on the minute. In itself this "micro-karst" form is of little significance but when integrated with other aspects of solution it is the basis from which the large forms are derived. William E. Davies has spent two field seasons in northern Greenland as part of his work with the US Geological Survey. His observations on rillenstein are a byproduct of these geological explorations.
