A reply: A discussion: Basement-cover relationships on northern Vanna, Troms, Norway
pp. 185-186

In a comment to our paper (Opheim & Andresen 1989) dealing with the basement-cover relationships on northern Vanna, Rice (this volume) prefers an alternative explanation for the tectonostratigraphy to the one suggested by us. Instead of correlating the dike-intruded Skipsfjord nappe with the Middle Allochthon, Rice proposes correlating it with the Lower Allochthon. He further argues that the footwall to the Skipsfjord nappe belongs to the Lower Allochthon and not to the autochthonous/parautochthonous basement.
