GEOLOGICAL FIELD MAPPING
GEOLOGICAL FIELD MAPPING

Detailed outcrop mapping in Svalbard and on-offshore correlation are critical to better constrain paleogeography.

GEOLOGICAL SUBSURFACE MAPPING
GEOLOGICAL SUBSURFACE MAPPING

Subsurface mapping to identify the distribution of Lower Cretaceous wedges and to improving the understanding of basin evolution and fill.

PALEOGEOGRAPHY
PALEOGEOGRAPHY

An improved understanding of the Lower Cretaceous paleogeography in order to support successful exploration in the Greater Barents Sea region.

Biostratigraphy
Biostratigraphy

revised biostratigraphy for building a “correlative” on- and off- shore sequence and seismic stratigraphic
framework over the Greater Barents Sea region.

LoCrA Project

LoCrA Project

LoCrA is a consortium managed by the University of Stavanger and the University Centre in Svalbard in cooperation with other universities to improve the knowledge of the basin configuration and fill of the Lower Cretaceous basins in the high Arctic in order to predict coarse-grained siliciclastic wedges as plays. The LoCrA project was built in close cooperation with the FORCE forum sedimentology and stratigraphy network group. For more information about the project, you can download the proposal...
