Chemical characteristics of Finnish bedrock– 1:1000000 scale bedrock map units

Document Type

Technical Report

Publication Date



The Rock Geochemical Database of Finland contains analytically consistent whole-rock geochemical data representing the diversity of rock types from throughout Finland. This Report of Investigation provides average chemical compositions of map units and their regional combinations as presented on the 1:1 000 000 Bedrock Map of Finland. These summary data provide useful background and reference values for a wide variety of research topics such as crustal evolution, metallogeny and the environment.
