Three main depositional sequences have been determined in the seismic records taken off West Spitsbergen(1) a Plio-Pleistocene sequence SPI-I with velocities of 1.7 to 2.8 km/sec;(2) a Pliocene allochthonous sequence SPI-II with velocities of 2.4 to 2.8 km/sec underlying unconformity U1;(3) a pre-Middle Oligocene sequence SPI-III with velocities of 2.9 to 4.8 km/sec underlying a distinct unconformity (U2) and deposited in front of the downfaulted Spitsbergen Platform indicating some opening of the Greenland Sea already...
