TopoScandiaDeep Field Trip, Tectonic Topography of Norway's MTFC

This report describes a one-day field trip to observe relationships between brittle normal faults and landscape evolution on a post-glacial passive margin. The hypothesis that the great escarpment of western Norway was shaped after the main rift phases, through reactivation of inherited faults inboard of sharply tapering crystalline crust was based on combinations of apatite fission-track dating, structural geology, topographic analysis and interpretation of offshore deep seismic and potential field data. Comprised by nine stops, the trip begins in Molde and ends in Trondheim. The total driving time is a little over five hours.
