The basal thrust of the Kalak Nappe Complex outcrops on the mainland adjacent to the island of Seiland in Finnmark and dips north-westwards beneath the island. A deformation sequcnce associated with boudins in the Komagnes Group of eastern Seiland comprised an initial phase of compression across the layering followed by rotation of the stress field to produce rotation and in some cases folding of the boudin pods plus the development of folds spatially unconnected to the boudins. The deformation sequence is related to movements associated with the basal Kalak thrust during late-Finnmarkian (latest Cambrian-earliest Ordovician) D2 times.
