Upper Permian lowstand fans of the Bredehorn Member, Schuchert Dal Formation, East Greenland (M. Kreiner-Møller, L. Stemmerik). Mesozoic. 4. Sedimentology and palaeogeography of the Statfjord Formation (Rhaetian-Sinemurian), North Sea (A. Ryseth). 5. Sedimentary facies in the fluvial dominated Åre Formation as seen in the Åre 1 member in the Heidrun Field (K.E. Svela). 6. Sedimentology of the heterolithic and tide-dominated Tilje Formation (Early Jurassic, Halten Terrace, offshore Mid-Norway) (A.W. Martinius, I. Kaas, A. Næss, G. Helgesen, J.M. Kjærefjord, D.M. Leith). 7. Sequence stratigraphy of the Lower Jurassic Dunlin Group, Northern North Sea (M. Charnock, I.L. Kristiansen, A. Ryseth, J. Fenton). 8. Divergent development of two neighbouring basins following the Jurassic North Sea doming event: The Danish Central Graben and the Norwegian-Danish Basin (J. Andsbjerg, L.H. Nielsen, P.N. Johannessen, K. Dybkjær). 9. An integrated study of the Garn and Melke Formations (Middle to Upper Jurassic) of the Smørbukk area, Halten Terrace, Mid-Norway (S. Corfield, I. Sharp, K.-O. Häger, T. Dreyer, J. Underhill). 10. Middle Jurassic-Lower Cretaceous transgressive-regressive sequences and facies distribution off northern Nordland and Troms, Norway (M. Smelror, A. Mørk, M.B.E. Mørk, H. Weiss, H. Løseth). 11. Outcrop studies of tidal sandstones for reservoir characterization (Lower Cretaceous Vectis Formation, Isle of Wight, southern England) (S. Yoshida, M. Jackson, H. Johnson, A. Muggeridge, A.W. Martinius). 12. Lower Cretaceous (Barremian-Albian) deltaic and shallow marine sandstones in North-East Greenland-sedimentology, sequence stratigraphy and regional implications (M. Larsen, T. Nedkvitne, S. Olaussen). 13. The depositional history of the Cretaceous in the northeastern North Sea (T. Bugge, B. Tveiten, S. Bäckström). 14. Cretaceous faulting and associated coarse-grained marine gravity flow sedimentation, Traill Ø, East Greenland (F. Surlyk, N. Noe-Nygaard). 15. Cretaceous-Tertiary palaeo-bathymetry in the northern North Sea: integration of palaeo-water depth estimates obtained by structural restoration and micropalaeontological studies ((R. Kyrkjebø, T. Kjennerud, G. Gillmore, J.I. Faleide, R. Gabrielsen). 16. Structural restoration of Cretaceous-Cenozoic (post-rift) palaeobathymetry in the northern North Sea (T. Kjennerud, J.I. Faleide, R. Gabrielsen, G. Gillmore, R. Kykjebø, S. Lippard, H. Løseth). 17. The reconstruction and analysis of palaeowater depths: a new approach and test of micropalaeontological approaches in the post-rift (Cretaceous to Quaternary) interval of the northern North Sea (G. Gillmore, T. Kjennerud, R. Kyrkjebø). Cenozoic. 18. Outcrop-based classification of thick-bedded, deep marine sandstones (O. Badescu). 19. Use of integrated 3D seismic technology and sedimentary core analysis to resolve the sedimentary architecture of the Palaeocene succession of the North Sea (M. Cecchi, C. Guargena, L. Hansen, D. Rhodes, A. Roberts). 20. The Maastrichtian and Danian depositional setting along the eastern margin of the Møre Basin (Mid-Norwegian shelf): implications for reservoir development of the Ormen Lange Field (J. Gjelberg, T. Enoksen, P. Kjærnes, G. Mangerud, O.J. Martinsen, E. Vågnes). 21. Glacial processes and large-scale morphology on the Mid-Norwegian continental shelf (D. Ottesen, L. Rise, K. Rokoengen, J. Sættem). 22. Late Quaternary sedimentary processes and environment on the Norwegian-Greenland Sea continental margins (T. Vorren, J.S. Laberg). 23. Accretionary forced regressive shoreface sands of the Holocene-Recent Skagen Odde spit complex, Denmark-a possible outcrop analogue to fault-attached shoreface sandstone reservoirs (L.-H. Nielsen, P.N. Johannessen).
