Panorama: Sveabreen, Nordfjord, Isfjord

Sveab­reen (-gla­cier) in inner Nordfjord on the nort­hern side of Isfjord. The gla­cier can easi­ly be seen from Lon­gye­ar­by­en if the wea­ther is good. The moun­tain west of Sveab­reen shows beau­ti­ful geo­lo­gi­cal pat­terns: fold­ed lay­ers, depo­si­ted during the Permi­an, more than 250 mil­li­on years ago, in shal­low, warm seas near the equa­tor. The­se sedi­ments are rich in fos­sils.
