From the Norwegian name for the Arctic Char (Salvelinus alpinus).



The type section is defined as the interval from 1745.4 m to 1623.5 m in well 7128/6-1 located on the Finnmark Platform (Fig. 53). The base of the formation is there characterised by a marked increase in the gamma ray log response, and a corresponding decrease in both density and interval transit time based on the density and sonic logs. This represents the transition from tight limestones of the underlying IsbjГёrn Formation to silicified deposits in the basal part of the RГёye Formation (Fig. 54).
