dc.description.abstractForkortet: In the district of Rana in Northern Norway (about 66 1\/2\u00B0 N) we have some of the most important layers of limestone and dolomitic limestone in Norway. Grønligrotten (the situation shown on map p.4) is probably the largest cave in Norway and has been known to people of science and some tourists for a long time; but on account of the somewhat isolated situation, the cave has not gained the attention of a larger public. On pp. 5-11 the author gives a description of the cave. The outlet is situated only some hundred yards to the North of Grønli farm at a height of 236 m above sea level at the contact bet- ween the great limestone layers at Grønli and the overlying mica-schist strata dipping only to the North. From this point we have channels running into the mountain in several directions, to the East and to the North. In the eastern one, runs a little river, disappearing for a while, then coming once more into the channel, this time into the main channel by \"Fossen\". At the end of \"Bække- slukten\" the river disappears a second time. From the part called \"Storkirken\", which may be regarded as a central part of the cave, a great number of channels extend in all directions, as \"Klippetunnelen\" towards the mountain surface.
