The Norwegian Offshore Stratigraphic Lexicon (NORLEX) provides a relational stratigraphic database for the North Sea, Norwegian Sea, Barents Sea and Svalbard. Both regional lithostratigraphy and biostratigraphy are being substantially updated, following guidelines laid out in the International Stratigraphic Guide. The specialistic body of information with high-resolution subsurface correlations is available as oracle database, and the principal lithostratigraphic definitions as text documents. NORLEX is presented as a browsing website via the internet at http://www.nhm.uio.no/norlex.
