Geological descriptions of the FIRE profiles

These pages provide supporting summaries of existing descriptions and interpretations of the geological features found along the FIRE profiles.

Surface geology is presented alongside interpretations of upper crustal structures and divided into geologically defined domains. The deep structures interpreted from the seismic profiles are given in separate descriptions when appropriate and available. Scientific references for the geological descriptions and information are given in profile-specific lists.

The preliminary report of the original FIRE project can be found in the Special Paper 43 of the Geological Survey of Finland:
