A correlation chart is presented containing the stratigraphical results of some selected Norwegian studies in the wide field of Quaternary geology. Studies of plant remains in bogs, pollen investigations, evidence of transgressions, shoreline diplacement, registered by isolation of troughs from the sea during isostatic rise of the land mass, have all contributed to the columns of the chart. Furthermore, shoreline stages based upon occurrence of marine Mollusca in litteral sediments in Norwegian localities as well as in Spitsbergen, clay deposits in the Oslofjord area, subdivided by their content of marine Pelecypoda and Foraminifera, marginal moraine substages in southern Norway and in the northernmost part of the country have been plotted. A curve illustrating the variation in the height of the firn line in western Norway is also inserted.
