Thore G. Halle (1884–1964) published in 1910 his contribution to the knowledge of the structure and history of the Malvinas Islands, in the Bulletin of the Geological Institution of the University of Upsala7. G. Andersson, about the Precambrian age of the gneisses and schists outcropping at Cape Meredith, underlying Devonian sandstones whose occurrence and age have been very useful in certain paleogeographic interpretations. To the Devonian faunas noted by Halle, it should be added his findings of a Neopaleozoic flora.

27 The Nahuel Huapi work resulted in a 360 pages monograph28 that unfortunately could not be finished until in 1959, completed by his wife Anna five years after his death. Other aspects of his work in Argentina were published as a series, Misión cientifica sueca Ljungner (Llungner) a la Patagonia 1932–1934. Seventeen large and small papers were published, five of them with Ljungner as the only author. In Sweden, where he was appointed professor at Lund University in 1948, he continued to work mainly in the Scandinavian mountain range.

A second expedition to Patagonia, developed between 1937–1938, allowed him to expand these studies using the opening of new roads in the Nahuel Huapi National Park area, in Northern Patagonia. There, he was able to investigate numerous tephra layers that he correlated with similar ones found in Tierra del Fuego. In 1946, Auer led another trip, as a consultant for the Argentine Ministry of Agriculture; his visit was specifically requested by the Argentine President to the Finnish President. He worked until 1953, but he returned to Argentina between 1956 and 1957, being responsible for the research coordination not only in scientific projects, but also in detailed mapping projects related to agricultural problems, such as irrigation planning and land distribution.
