Summary:Upper Palaeozoic strata drilled at the Svalis Dome contain sedimentary rocks which closely resemble the succession of the Gipsdalen and Tempelfjorden groups in the Svalbard Archipelago. The Gipsdalen group cores are dominated by fossiliferous grainstones and packstones deposited on a carbonate shelf. The Tempelfjorden group cores are dominated by silicified, often fossiliferous, wackestones and fragmented siliciclastics of more basinal setting. At the top of the succession (below the Triassic shales), a fossiliferous packstone with productids resembles the Miseryfjellet formation, Bjφrnφya. [G.R.]
