ECLOCAL Prog IPEV 398

The main purpose of the project is to outline a structural model for the exhumation of Caledonian high-pressure rocks in NW Spitsbergen.
In addition to the more specific structural studies, the area will be remapped for the 1:100,000 geological map A4G Vasahalvøya, which is part of the larger geological mapping program under the Norwegian Polar Institute's direction.
Three weeks of field work will be devoted to the central part of Biscayarhalvøya during July 2003.
The main purpose of the project is to outline a structural model for the exhumation of Caledonian high-pressure rocks in Central Spitsbergen. A two week field study is proposed to further constrain the retrograde history of the newl discovered carpholite-bearing schists in Motalafjella.
