Norwegian bedrock geology: Understanding and using Europe's oldest rocks

General description

The fjords and mountains of Norway are formed in some of the oldest and hardest rocks of Europe. These rocks are part of an old mountain chain - the Caledonian mountain range - that was once as high as the Alps or Himalaya, but is now eroded down. The mountain core was later cut by the Oslo Rift.

This is a course in field geology, consisting of bus travel and lectures in the field. We will study these rocks and their industrial sites. The course begins in Trondheim and ends in Oslo.
