In July 1967 nine electrical soundings were measured at Tjørnuvík, Streymoy, the Faroe Islands. The main purpose
was to determine the thickness of the sedimentary layers, which overlay the basalt. The measurements show that the sediment cover mainly consists of three layers (Fig. 5). The average thickness of the sedimemt cover is found to be about 4 m, the maximum thickness being about 7 m. The thiakness of the layers decrease generally towards the east. Presumably, the
surface of the basalt has a moderate relief and everywhere the surface seems to be above present sea-level. (Fig. 6).
