Bedrock Geology of the Porsanger - Tana Region, Finnmark: An Excursion Guide.

Thirty-one selected localities are brefly described along a traverse from Porsangerfjorden to Tanafjorden. The localities provide a general impression of representative rock types and their deformation in the Gaissa and Lakse- fjord Nappe Complex, as well as the mylonitic rocks in the basal thrust of the overlying Kalak Nappe Complex. Attention is paid to the stromatolite biostromes in the Porsanger dolomite. These biostromes, which are a some- what unique feature of Norwegian geology, are beautifully exposed in parts of Porsangerfjorden.
