Norsk Geologisk Tidsskrift, 48, pp.Oslo The older gneisses of the Tafjord area in the basal gneiss region of southwestern Norway yield a Rb-Sr whole-rock isochron age of (±)xl09 years and a K-Ar biotite age of (±12)x1()8 years.

Analyses of coexisting garnets, clinopyroxenes and plagioclases from eclogites and high pressure granulitic gneisses in the Kristiansund area within the west Norwegian basal gneiss region are used to establish the P-T conditions for the metamorphic peak for these rocks.

The Western Gneiss Region (WGR) of Norway is the deepest exposed structural level of an old mountain chain - the Caledonides - the last major mountain building episode in NW Europe.

The orogeny actually lasted a long time - perhaps as long as million years, and was associated with the closure of the Iapetus ocean and the resultant collision.

The area is part of the north-west Jotunheim mountains in southern Norway and consists of three rock units; Granitic rocks of the Basal Gneiss outcrop in the north of the area; supracrustal rocks of presumed Eo-Cambrian to Ordovician age in the central part and the Upper Jotun Nappe outcrops in the south.

Previous work in the area (mainly by Nottingham workers) Cited by: 1. The range is located in the southern central area of Norway and covers an area roughly km square. The mountains are sculpted by glaciers eating away at the sides to form steep dramatic peaks interconnected with sharp exposed ridges that offer classic routes from exposed scrambles through to testing alpine traverses.

Surrounding this mass of granitoid gneisses is a series of banded gneisses of very variable composition, including amphibolites, quartzites, and nodular sillimanite gneisses.

Against these rocks the granitic gneisses make a sharp, though in places 'interfingered' contact. Agmatitic relationships are never seen.

The Western Gneiss Complex is mainly exposed across the southern extent of the WGR, and it is inferred to reappear again in the north.

More than species of birds have been identified in the area, and the number of plants is far higher than might be expected so far north. On Svalbard it is claimed that there are species of birds with a much smaller number of mammals.

The bird numbers are dominated by seagulls, but differ ent types of eider ducks and geese also nest here. Bygland muncipality has approximately inhabitants and covers a area of ,2 km2. Bygland is a typical agriculture and forestry district. The higgest township is Byglandsfjord which celebrated its th anniversary in The walking in Bygland is excellent and.

The area described here is localized between th e Rana fjord (Nesna-Mo i Rana) in the south, and the Salten-Skjerstad fjord (Bodø-Rognan) in the north. Two large national parks and several other protected areas are located to this area.

The Nordland National Park Centre (NNPC) is located close to the E6. As the gateway to the world-famous Norwegian fjords, Norway’s Ålesund and Sunnmøre region is overflowing with an abundance of natural treasures. But nature is only part of the story. The town of Ålesund is a cultural treasure as well with a tragic yet beautiful history.Precambrian.

Rocks of Archean age in Norway are confined to a few 10 km-scale areas within younger metamorphic belts exposed on islands off the west coast of northern Norway and as smaller fragments locally in the Western Gneiss Region in south-central Norway.

Despite intense reworking during the Caledonian orogeny in some areas, three major belts can be recognised .The main goal of this thesis is to make a tectonostratigraphic map of the North to North-east part of Hardangerjøkulen (Klippe), close to Finse.

The area is defined by three main units: the Basement, Phyllite and the Middle Allochthon. The basement is characterized by granitic and gabbroic lithology, both with an age of by: 2.
