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.
I 2002 publiserte NGU et geologisk kart over Nord-Europa i målestokk 1:4 millioner. Dette heftet beskriver nærmere de geologiske forholdene geologien i de 24 landene og tre sjøområder som omfattes av kartet.
Proceedings of the International Symposium 'Geological mapping in the service of environmental planning' held in Trondheim, Norway, 6-9 May 1986.
Special Publication 12/2009: QuarryScapes: ancient stone quarry landscapes in the Eastern Mediterranean
The spectacular monuments and cities of the ancient Near East are testament to an industrial past where large-scale stone procurement remains unequalled.
Forkortet: The Varanger Peninsula is underlain by weakly metamorphosed sedimentary rocks of Late Proterozoic to Early Cambrian age. The rocks occur in two regions: the Tanafjorden-Varangerfjorden Region (TVR) (southwestern half of the penin- sula) and the Barents Sea Region (BSR) (northeastern half), juxtaposed along a complex NW-SE-trending fault zone, The Trollfjorden-Komagelva Fault Zone (TKFZ).
The Ordovician successions of the Oslo Region are subdivided in terms of a modern lithostratigraphical scheme. Twenty-nine formations are defined; some of which are subdivided into stratigraphical or geographical members. Type localities (including hypostratotypes) are designated and many illu- strated by measured sections.
Special Publication 9/2003: Ilmenite deposits and their geological environment. Special reference to the Rogaland Anorthosite Province
Anortosittprovinsen i Rogaland er, som navnet antyder, kjent for sine store forekomster av bergarten anortositt. Området er lite overdekket med løsmasser, slik at berggrunnen er synlig over nesten hele provinsen.

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 global demand for geological resources is on the rise, and knowing where to look for these resources is becoming increasingly more important. In addition, quantifying these resources is vital to ensure present-day as well as future supplies.
Special Publication 14/2014: Palynology and geology of the Triassic succession of Svalbard and the Barents Sea
Svalbard has been a key area for the study of Arctic Triassic successions for over a hundred years.
A collection of short descriptions of the geology of countries and sea areas within the region covered by the 1:4 million bedrock geological map.

A geological excursion guide with thematic articles prepared for the NATO. Advanced Study Institute Meeting held at Moi, Norway, 1984.
Skagerrak in the past and at the present - an integrated study of geology, chemistry, hydrography and microfossil ecology
The Skagerrak Project is the first major task of the MGK-programme (MGK is the Norwegian acronomy for Marine geological mapping of Norwegian sea-floor areas) which is a joint effort of six governmental institutions involved in various aspects of marine work.
Special Publication 15/2020: The architecture of Svalbard's Devonian basins and the Svalbardian Orogenic Event
This is a review of the structural and tectonic evolution of the Old Red Sandstone (ORS) of Svalbard put into the context of current regional geological understanding.
