Excursion Route and Road Log

Abstract

The order of the days given is arbitrary, since weather-dependent boat journeys are included; these should be done at the earliest possible moment.

The use of hammers anywhere is strongly discouraged unless samples are being taken as part of a proper scientific study or from an outcrop where the material taken is present in great abundance. At Oaibaccannjar’ga, the use of hammers is entirely prohibited, by law. Further, a license is required to export rocks, minerals, and fossils from Norway.

Global positioning system (GPS) coordinates are given for most outcrops. “GEC” refers to coordinates derived from Google Earth. The two systems give the same coordinates, but the latter are less accurately positioned, largely because Google Earth currently has poor quality satellite images of East Finnmark. However, to make finding the outcrops easier, the positions of all the stops and locations can be plotted on Google Earth and the image then downloaded prior to undertaking the excursion. Much better quality images can be screen-dumped from http://www.1881.no/kart/#/ or from http://kart.statkart.no/.
