Notes: This is a map of the southern part of Spitsbergen showing the Helvetiafjelletfjellet and Carolinefjellet units in red that underlie and rim a Tertiary foreland basin. We have samples and observations from 5 sites. Petrographic examination had been completed on Midterhuken (M), Gruvdalen (G), and Carolinefjellet (C), which provide a north-south traverse.
