Abstract "Extensive geological and geophysical surveying contribute to understanding of the deep crustal structure and geological history of the Early Precambrian crust of the eastern Fennoscandian Shield and the basement of the East European Platform. The authors present 3D models of the deep crustal structure of the territory, and reconstruct the succession of geological events"-- Provided by publisher.
