Magma-host rock interaction. Processes of assimilation in a zone of magma transfer: Hortavær intrusive complex, north central Norway
Figure 1. Geologic map of the Hortavær archipelago (Barnes et al., in press). The Hortavær igneous complex is outlined by the thin dashed curve. Granitic gneiss that underlies Kvingra (red island in SE of map area) is interpreted as a separate intrusion, not part of the Hortavær igneous complex.
