Brønnøy and Sømna in the map[edit]

The map with the municipalities is really great, there is just one mistake: Municipality number 32 (Sømna) is placed in Brønnøy (number 8). Sømna is smaller, covering the little grey area south of Brønnøy, but the number (32) is placed in Brønnøy.

Cambrian - Silur[edit]

I suspect the refe4rence to "Cambrian - Silur" bedrock in the Geology section should read "Cambrian - Silurian". Opbeith (talk) 19:01, 10 December 2010 (UTC)

The demonym Nordlending[edit]

The term "Nordlending" does not exclusively refer to the people of Nordland county, but those of Troms and Finnmark as well (i.e. the Nord-Norge region). Some have argued that the demonym should be applied only to people of Nordland, but it is proven that the term was in use long before the county was established and referred to people of Nord-Norge in general.

Jan Mayen[edit]

Is Jan Mayen part of Nordland or not? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.108.58.1 (talk) 04:54, 20 June 2014 (UTC)

I see now - Svalbard and Jan Mayen - it is administered by the central government using the Nordland governor. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.108.58.1 (talk) 05:53, 20 June 2014 (UTC)
