A compilation of the present knowledge of the Quaternary geology of Norway. About the landscape development, the glacial history, the record of deposits during the last 300,000 years, and the neotectonics in Norway and adjacent areas
This volume of NGU Special Publication presents some of the ongoing research at the Geological Survey of Norway and shows how geology and geological knowledge influence many areas of society.
The Skagerrak is an area of considerable interest, in terms of both environmental and industrial issues. Sedimentary rocks, generally of the same type as in the North Sea, provide a potential for economic hydrocarbon resources.
