      Next stop on the Caledonian trail is northern Norway. Near Bodø is the dramatic outcrop pictured below, part of our mountain building event that spanned a couple of millions of years and great distances. Big thanks to Battleboy on Flickr, who gave me permission to use his stunning photo, taken from a boat. “ The landscapes are amazing, between rocks, cliffs and water/The skies are always changing and if the weather is fine (earth and space weather), you can admire the great northern lights. “ Cruise ship was very good and we enjoyed sailing and enjoyed the beauty of ice packed mountains on the side of fjords and it anchored 2 ports before.

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. Caledonian geology of northern Norway book Caledonian orogeny was a mountain-building era recorded in the northern parts of Ireland and Britain, the Scandinavian Mountains, Svalbard, eastern Greenland and parts of north-central Europe.

The Caledonian orogeny encompasses events that occurred from the Ordovician to Early Devonian, roughly – million years ago ().It was caused by the closure of the Iapetus.

"The Making of a Land - Geology of Norway" takes the reader on a journey in geological time, from primordial times to the present day.

A fantastic journey from the summits of Norway's spectacular rugged and weather-beaten mountains to the riches concealed in the sedimentary rocks on the continental shelf. This book displays the treasures of Norwegian geology for 5/5(2).

Structural Geology and Tectonic Evolution of the Sognefjord Transect, Caledonian Orogen, Southern Norway—A Field Trip Guide Author(s) The Sognefjord transect through the Lower to Middle Paleozoic Caledonian orogenic belt in southern Norway provides a superb and exceptionally well-documented example of late collisional, Alpine-type.

The Northern Highland and Grampian terranes together comprise an extensive tract of structurally complex and generally high-grade metamorphic rocks within the Caledonian orogenic belt of Scotland ().This part of the orogen is dominated by two thick sequences of mainly Neoproterozoic metasedimentary rocks.

Norway occupies part of northern Europe’s Fennoscandian extremely hard bedrock, which consists mostly of granite and other heat- and pressure-formed materials, ranges from one to two billion years in age. Relief. Glaciation and other forces wore down the surface and created thick sandstone, conglomerate, and limestone deposits known as sparagmite.

Ireland, northern England, the northern North Sea and Norway were occupied by the Caledonian eugeosyncline and geanticline. Denmark, Sweden and the Baltic formed part of the Caledonian miogeosynclinal realm. For the Silurian, Walter () postulates emergent areas for southern Norway and parts of the southern North Sea and adjacent Germany.

The magmatic and metamorphosed rocks of the Precambrian shield as well as the ones of the Caledonian fold belt are mostly very hard.

Nevertheless, during many million years after the Caledonian orogeny, they were worn down to lowland near sea level, but after strong uplift in the lower Tertiary, they are now able to withstand erosion for quite a while, thus forming the.

The Northern Highlands contain many intrusions of acid and basic dykes, sheets and plutons collectively referred to as the Caledonian Igneous Suite. These intrusions can be assigned to groups which are pre-tectonic, syn-tectonic and post-tectonic with respect to.

Northern Norway is by far the largest and most sparsely populated part of mainland Norway, and covers more than a third of the country. It stretches from the idyllic Helgeland region in the south to mainland Europe’s northernmost point near the North Cape.
