Abstract [en]

All geoscientists working with the geology of Sweden are invited to join a common effort to review Swedish geological nomenclature and the naming of geological units and other features. A new guide, the Guide for geological nomenclature in Sweden, provides advice for this review process. The Geological Survey of Sweden will set up a new open and freely accessible database for geological names, and a dedicated name committee with mandate to formally approve proposed names will supervise the naming process. The success of this vital long-term commitment will depend on active participation of the geoscientific community at large.
