The Jurassic and Cretaceous sequence of Spitsbergen, Svalbard archipelago, is described and a revised lithostratigraphical scheme, of four formations, is proposed. The main episode of tectonic activity, together with dolerite intrusion, was in late Jurassic-early Cretaceous times and is represented by a non-sequence and local unconformity between the two lower formations. The faunal succession is also discussed.
