Introduction

Abstract

The excursion was first run as part of the International Geo-science Programme (IGCP) 512 “Neoproterozoic Ice Ages” project during the 33rd International Geological Congress, in Oslo, Norway, 2008. This guide is based on the material used for that excursion, with some comments by participants, both positive and adverse, added here.

Note that this is a guide to use in the field and is not necessarily fully understandable without actually being in front of the rocks. The aim has been to provide a comprehensive (within reason) coverage of both the typical and the atypical lithologies and sedimentary structures (sedimentary facies) in the area. The guide is not a systematic update on published ideas and interpretations, although this has been done at some outcrops. Readers are strongly encouraged to critically evaluate our interpretations in the field and to publish their own ideas.
