- Rapporter 
A total of 37 gas flares have been identified in a 325 km2 area northeast of Kvitøya. Most of the flares occur in the western part of the area. Many occur along a NNW-SSE trend, indicating that they may be sourced from deep-seated NNW-SSE trending faults.Sedimentary bedrock beneath a thin cover of soft sediments is indicated in a small depression in the western part of the study area, where we observe crag and tail structures and outcropping strata.Very few pockmarks occur in the investigated area, and the pockmarks observed are small and shallow.
