Field trip to Oslo Graben_main_img

A field course in structural geology focusing on basin development, rift mechanisms and extensional structural styles in brittle rocks. In order to fully comprehend the faulting and deformations in your softer reservoir rocks above, you need to understand what lies beneath.

In 2005 the Geological Society of Norway organized a field trip in the classical Oslo Region. We will repeat half of this with a one and a half days field trip to the most classical and not easy accessible locations in the area, primarily with boat on the Oslo Fjord.
