Geology of the Kvarken Archipelago

Publication from 2004. The Kvarken Archipelago has undergone a long sequence of geological processes. What we can see today is one part of the geologic evolution of the earth’s crust: crystalline bedrock from ancient times and overburden representing young geologic processes as a heritage of the Ice Age. Ongoing geologic processes are rapidly and invariably changing the face of this unique area over the course of a human’s lifetime.
