Sequence stratigraphy has provided geologists with a new tool in stratigraphical and sedimentological studies. The methods and the terminology are described and explained in several publications in English. However, there is a need for translation of the terminology to Norwegian because: 1) geologists in Norway use Norwegian as their working language; 2) sequence stratigraphic methods and nomenclature is often controversial and confusing. Consequently, there is a demand for an unambiguous and accepted Norwegian translation and explanation of sequence stratigraphic terms. Such translation and explanation is provided in the present paper.
