Greenland?[edit]

So is this not considered part of Greenland? The Geography of Greenland article lists Cape Morris Jesup as it's most northern point. Who controls/owns Kaffeklubben? - Taxman Talk 12:30, Jun 9, 2005 (UTC)

  • Ok, that makes sense. It could note Cap Morris Jesup as the northern point of the main island, and this as the most northern island in the territory controlled by Greenland. Thanks - Taxman Talk 13:35, Jun 15, 2005 (UTC)
It's on this map. Fred Bauder 15:17, 5 February 2007 (UTC)

The stated lattitude for Kaffeklubben Island is 83.6667°N and for Cape Morris Jesup 83.6275°N. This is difference of 0.0392° or 4.35 km (0.0392*111.11 km), which is much more than the stated 750 m. What is wrong? --Eivindghoel 12:52, 6 August 2007 (UTC)

From one who stood on that island[edit]

An e-mail was received from Ms. Lonnie Dupre, who stood on the island in 2006. It read:

The island is only 100 yards wide and 300 long. The island has three separate high spots or knolls. Each one has a 3 foot to four foot rock cairn located on it. The so called islands (Oodaaq...) out from kaffeklubben are not islands at all but shallow gravel bars that are moved around by drifting sea ice.

So which is it?[edit]

ATOW1996 also claims to be the northernmost land point on the Earth.--Roentgenium111 (talk) 13:01, 3 November 2009 (UTC)

As that article indicates, ATOW1996 has not been confirmed to be stable/permanent, as Kaffeklubben is known to be. —Lowellian (reply) 20:30, 12 October 2013 (UTC)

Coordinate error[edit]

{{geodata-check}}

The following coordinate fixes are need for Kaffeklubben Island 83° 40' n 29° 50' w . (On top of the page it says WGS84 83° 39′ 41.76″ N, 30° 36′ 35.52″ W 83.6616, -30.609867) and these coordinates does not bring you to the right place.
