Abstract

During Upper Carboniferous to Upper Permian the vast Barents Sea Platform between Timan-Pechora and Spitsbergen was host to an environment stimulating a variety of reef morphology and inter-reef facies development. Salt ponds and basins of variable dimensions and morphometry are scattered over the platform, competing with the adjacent reefs. The present study focuses on the area of the Hapet Dome in the eastern Bjarmeland Platform, where the shape and outline of salt ponds and basins are defined by a fractal pattern. The salt basins in the Hapet area have been classified into Macro, Meso and Mini saltbasins. The structural evolution of the Hapet Dome can be timely separated into an earlier extension during Upper Triassic and a later collapse phase during Late Cretaceous to Tertiary.
