Record-breaking height for 8000-Year-Old tsunami in the North Atlantic
(American Geophysical Union, 2003-08-05)
Calendar year age estimates of Allerød - Younger Dryas sea-level oscillations at Os, western Norway
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2004)
A detailed shoreline displacement curve documents the Younger Dryas transgression in western Norway. The relative sea-level rise was more than 9m in an area which subsequently experienced an emergence of almost 60 m. The ...
Structure and evolution of the Bellsund Graben between Forlandsundet and Bellsund (Spitsbergen) based on marine seismic data
(Geological Soceity of Norway, 2009)
Seismic interpretation of multi-channel seismic data acquired along the western shelf of Spitsbergen allowed identification of the main geological features of the area, including the Hornsund Fault Zone, and the Forlandsundet ...
Fracture-generated permeability and groundwater yield in Norway
(Norges geologiske undersøkelse, 2002)
The transport of groundwater in bedrock is largely determined by interconnected fractures and their apertures. The conditions by which fractures become interconnected are thus of primary importance in understanding ...
The start of a major sea-level rise indicates that icesheet expansion in western Norway commenced before the Younger Dryas
The relative sea level rose 10 m on Sotra, western Norway, during the Younger Dryas (YD). Based on dating of isolation basins, the transgression started in late Allerød at ~13 110 and ended in late YD at ~11 780 cal yr ...
Drilling for the Archean Roots of Life and Tectonic Earth in the Barberton Mountains

Sr/Ca in Calcitic Tests of Benthic Foraminifera - A Potential Water-Depth Proxy?
(Bentham Open, 2009)
Well-preserved low-Mg calcite tests of modern benthic foraminifera from a depth transect off SW Norway show decreasing Sr/Ca with increasing water depth (r = –0.84). The Mg/Ca ratios also decrease with increasing water depth, ...
Evidence for three North Sea tsunamis at the Shetland Islands between 8000 and 1500 years ago
(Elsevier Ltd., 2005-08)
Coastal fen- and lake deposits enclose sand layers that record at least three Holocene tsunamis at the Shetland Islands. The oldest is the well-known Storegga tsunami (ca 8100 cal yr BP), which at the Shetlands invaded ...
