Regional landslide occurrences and possible post-glacial earthquake activity in northwest Western Norway: sediment cores from five lakes in Nordfjord and Sunnmøre (Phase B2)

NGU, Norsk Hydro ASA, the University of Bergen and Sogn and Fjordane College collaborate on a project aiming to identify regional slide/mass-movement events and to interpret triggering factors for such slides (Regional landslide occur- rences and possible post-glacial earthquake activity in northwest Western Norway) Evidence for such slides have been searched for in five lakes in Nordfjord and Sunnmøre by penetration echosounding profiling and bathymetric mapping. From these lakes, 26 sediment cores, with a combines length of 70 m, have been samples with a modified 110 mm Livingstone piston corer. This field report (Phase B2) gives a summary of the sediment sampling, including the geographical location of the cores and their stratigraphical location compared to the echosounding profiles.
