Abstract

Recent varve studies in the Stockholm region show that there are 3 zones of seismotectonically disturbed varves separated by about 20 varves (i.e. years); a major Mid-Holocene seismotectonic event is indicated by structural evidence in the Mount Billingen area; and archaeoseismic records indicate heavy fracturing of the bedrock surface associated with an earthquake younger than 3000 BP and perhaps identical with the 1904 event. These records show that the Fennoscandian shield is far more susceptible to seismotectonic faulting and fracturing than has generally been claimed. This has, of course, an important bearing on scenarios for safe long-term deposition of high-level nuclear wastein bedrock
