The aim of the Tectonics and Structural Geology Studies Group of NGF is to establish a forum for discussion of themes with relation to tectonics and structural geology, and to stimulate communication and co-operation between groups of academic institutions and industry working with this type of geological problems. The first meeting, which gathered eleven speakers, mirrored the
broad activity within the field of fault tectonics going on in Norway today from Svalbard in the north to the Central North Sea in the south.
The present report is an attempt to summarize the main points and conclusions given during the meeting. The report is mostly based upon abstracts
submitted after the meeting, and in some cases upon the oral presentations. Accordingly, the present authors are responsible for the general conclusions and possible misunderstandings or inaccuracies in the text.
