Summary:Late Palaeozoic sediments were deposited in the proto-Barents Sea along the N margin of the Fennoscandian Shield. These sediments have no outcrops on onshore Norway, but a condensed Upper Palaeozoic succession occurs on the Finnmark Platform close to the present coast of Norway. The entire 600-700 m thick Carboniferous-Permian succession, except for about 100 m, was cored during 1987 and 1988. Using high resolution multichannel seismic data, 14 seismic units have been defined. These are grouped into four stratigraphic intervals and discussed in a stratigraphic context based on seismic, sedimentological and biostratigraphic data. [G.R.]
