Summary:The Almklovdalen ultramafic body included in the basal gneisses of S Norway is composed mainly of hydrated harzburgite and dunite with cores of layered garnet lherzolite. The body can be interpreted as a deformed cone surrounding a gneissic central mass. Based on structural, microstructural and mineral preferred orientation studies, a continuous kinematic and metamorphic history is inferred. The major events of this history starting 1400-1800 m.y. ago are presented. [T.R.]
