Abstract

In the area of the Kemijoki drainage basin it has been possible to distinguish altogether 60 formations which fulfil the strictest criterice for inselbergs, i. e. clearness of a foot nick and strepness of hill slopes. Although all disconformities older than Mesozoic have probably been eroded to an unidentifiable extent, there is good reason to suppose that the main characteristics of the relief, including inselbergs, originated as early as the Late Cretaceous or at least in the Paleocene
