Abstract

Ice-rafted fossils of late Cretaceous and Tertiary age were detected in Pleistocene-Pliocene glacially influenced sediments of the Vdring Plateau, eastern Norwegian Sea. The ice-rafted associations contain frequent Inoceramus (Bivalvia) prisms and rare occurrences of both benthic and planktonic foraminifers of Miocene, Oligocene, and Maastrichtian to Campanian age. As source areas, shallow outcrops on the Norwegian Continental Shelf as well as the Greenland Shelf and the North and Baltic Seas have to be considered.
