During a summer field season 2013 I would like to investigate the growth faults and their impact into sedimentary facies distribution in the Billefjorden Trough, Svalbard. Two case areas will be examined: (1) the Løvehovden fault in Ebbadalen and Ragnarda len and (2) Odellfjellet and Balliolbreen faults in vicinity of Pyramiden. Both field cases expose growth-basin features developed in extensional regimes as a response to faulting, affecting the sedimentary architecture of the basin fill. Analysis of data collected during the field study (geological logs and structural measurements) will increase our understanding of the growth faults as well as a spatial and temporal facies distribution related to the growth faults. A complex structural and facial analys is will be performed in order to link tectonic settings of fault development with sedimentary processes.
