Sedimentological studies in the late Precambrian and lower Cambrian rocks of east Finnmark

Abstract:

In eastern Finnmark a northward thickening wedge of late Precambrian and Cambro-Ordovician sedimentary rocks extends 200km from east to west, with a maximum north- south width of approximately 50km. The succession lies unconformably upon Precambrian crystalline basement, which crops out to the south.
