The project Early Neoproterozoic Orogeny in the Arctic (NOA) studied the development of mountain chains in the Arctic regions during the Neoproterozoic era, i.e. 1,000–542 million years ago. The NOA-Svalbard expedition enabled researchers to obtain a clearer picture of how the region’s natural resources have arisen and developed, contributing to our understanding of how the areas of tectonic subsidence looked before the Paleozoic orogeny.
