Abstract : After outlining what is currently known - or can fairly safely be deduced - about weather, climate, geology, and the glaciers and the hydrography of the area, the three major landform regions of Nyeboe Land and their characteristic terrain features are discussed, as well as the terrain of each of the 26 areal sections into which Nyeboe Land has been subdivided. For each of these sections, the possibilities of access and traverse are discussed with the assumption that low-ground pressure tracked motor vehicles would be used as the means of transportation. The sectional terrain analysis is followed by a discussion of the means and routes of access to Nyeboe Land as a whole, of the routes through each area, and of potential major c mp sites. (Author)
