Friend. Get this from a library. Geology of Spitsbergen, [W B Harland; Valentin Nikolaevich Sokolov]. The geology of Svalbard encompasses the geological description of rock types found in Svalbard, and the associated tectonics and sedimentological history of soils and rocks.

The geological exploration of Svalbard is an ongoing activity, and recent understandings may differ from earlier interpretations.

The oldest formations, the so-called Basement, including Pre­cambrian, Cambrian and Ordovician rocks, occur as a belt along the west-coast of Spits­bergen, in a large area between Wijde­fjorden and Hinlopenstretet in the north, as well as in the northern part of Nordaust­landet and in the southern Geology of Spitsbergen.

The Svalbard archipelago is found in the Arctic Ocean, approximately km ( miles) north of the northernmost tip of Norway. It is a geologist’s paradise, having a rich geological history that can be traced back through the Mesozoic era ( million years ago), the Cambrian era ( million years ago), and all the way to the Archean era, over billion years ago.

The Hornsund area displays large variations in landscape and geology over short distances. The mountains, the valleys and the fjords combine to create huge local weather variations in the Hornsund area. There can, for example, be a strong easterly wind in Hornsund while along the west coast of Spitsbergen it is dead calm.

Svalbard (‘cold coasts; in Norwegian) is the official name since for the archipelago in the Norwegian administrative area between longitude 10° and 35° E, and latitude 74° and 81° N. It was originally referred to as Spitsbergen from and in the Treaty of Paris of Spitsbergen, Dutch for ‘pointed peaks’, has a human population and a Polar bear population that is roughly the same.

It is one of the most unspoiled wilderness areas in the world. Although 60% of the land is covered with flowing glaciers, it has incredibly diverse scenery, including tundra, fjords and mountains from which it gets its name. Table of Contents January ; (1) Articles.
