Figure 4. Triassic regression in the Barents Sea. (A) Well correlation showing Triassic regression from the east and Carnian transition from marine to continental conditions. (B) Seismic reflection line showing the northernmost termination of the Upper Triassic shelf–slope wedge system east of Svalbard. (C) Outcrop photograph showing erosive Carnian–Norian fluvial channel (arrow) on Hopen southeast of Svalbard (photograph courtesy of Tore Grane Klausen). These observations suggest that marine accommodation was not filled until the latest part of the Triassic and it is therefore unlikely that sediments from the Barents Sea bypassed to the paleo-Pacific margin. See Figures 1 and 3 for locations.
