It is suggested that an E-W trending lineament mapped along the north coast of Finnmark, north Norway (Vorren et al. 1986), may be the offshore extension to the Trollfjord-Komgelv Fault. This would indicate that this fault has been active subsequent to the Caledonian Orogeny, controlling sedimentation, with subsidence to the north. Additionally, the boundary between the Barents Shelf and the Finnmark Caledonides may be a broad zone, of which only the offshore portion has been active in Cenozoic times.
