Record #143900:

Proto-basement in Svalbard / Walter Brian Harland.

Title: Proto-basement in Svalbard / Walter Brian Harland.
Author(s): Harland, Walter Brian.
Date: 1997.
In: Polar Research. (1997.), Vol. 16(2) (1997)
Abstract: Candidates for possible Precambrian proto-basement throughout Svalbaard are considered. Paper provides tectono-stratigraphic framework for consideration of new data. Precambrian tectonic event is implied. Vendian rocks are widespread in Svalbard, so search is narrowed to pre-Vendian rocks. 9 groups are identified, with perhaps 6 more. Terrane implications agree with three terrane model of Harland and Wright, modified by author. If conclusions here are right, effect is to subtract from outcrops commonly mapped as likely proto-basement.
