North Norway Dave Hobday meditating on the striated pavement that underlies the Smalfjord Formation Reusch’s Moraine at low tide in a typical summer day in East Finnmark. Striated pavement along the unconformity between the Vadso Group and the Smalfjord Formation (“Reusch’s Moraine”) at the base of the Vestertana group. Striated roche moutonnee of Pleistocene age along the northern shore of inner Varangerfjord, East Finnmark, North Norway. Vertical paleoscarp eroded into lower part of the Vadso Group (to the right of the wave), overlain by conglomeratic sandstone of the Smalfjord Formation (to the left of the wave), which also contains large clasts of the former. Gamasfjellet at Leirpollen, Austertana. The southern slope of this mountain was subsequently developed as a quartzite mine, permanently disfiguring this spectacular landmark. Gapparas Mountain (inclined ridge, right foreground) west of Smalfjord. It is composed of a west-dipping ridge of Smalfjord Formation tillite. In the left background is Stangenestindend on the Varanger Peninsula. Gapparas mountain behind Sundsvatn lake, west of Smalfjord. Stangenestind on the Varanger Peninsula in the background. Tarmfjord, inner Tanafjord, East Finnmark, North Norway. View north along the peninsula on the west side of Tarmfjord; Digermul Peninsula in the background left, Varanger Peninsula in the background right. Lower part of Smalfjord FOrmation marked by lowest (right) bright dolomitic diamictite layer. Looking west across Tarmfjord to the peninsula west of Tarmfjord, and the Digermul Peninsula in the background. Brightly colored layers of dolomitic diamictite define the lower part of the Smalfjord Formation. Note the imbricate structure (north – right – dipping) of the dolomitic layers. Rounded dolomite clast with attached triangular-shaped mass of dolomitic diamictite in pressure shadow zone (right). Purple diamictite with bright buff dolomitic diamictite bands. Note isoclinal folds, diamictite masses in pressure shadows along clasts, and absence of primary sedimentary structures formed along a sediment-water interface. Angular dolomite clast with attached mass of dolomitic diamictite in pressure shadow zones. Fold structures in banded diamictite, Smalfjord Formation, Tarmfjord. Fold structures and sheared sedimentary clasts in banded diamictite, Smalfjord Formation, Tarmfjord.
