Geologi – stein, mineraler, fossiler og olje
This is a general book on geology, covering the basics in the Norwegian language. It represents a supplement to more comprehensive texts in English that may easily throw Norwegian novices off. Besides, it gives the reader insight into the Norwegian geo-terminology and makes the subject more familiar through its extensive use of examples from Scandinavia. An unpublished English version exists that I use for English-language introductory courses in geology.

Several e-modules (most of them in Norwegian) on rocks, minerals and geology in general were prepared that go well along with this book (see bottom; Norwegian stuff).
