  • Reindeer grazing impact on Arctic-Alpine landscapes in Western Greenland, and Central and Northern Norway
  • Degradation ; Ecosystem ; Greenland ; Landscape ecology ; Mountain ; Norway ; Polar region ; Reindeer
  • A long-term landscape ecological project in Central Norway offers new material that is used to interpret the grazing impact of reindeers in comparable ecosystems. A gradient was studied from central Norway, where there is no reindeer grazing
  • , to western Greenland with a natural population of reindeers, and finally to northern Norway, where overgrazing already exceeds the carrying capacity. With the help of ecological mapping, especially of vegetation and soils, and measurements of environmental

  • Lightning and special peat bog phenomena on Andøya, northern Norway
  • Atmospheric electricity ; Humid environment ; Mass movement ; Norway ; Peat bog
  • , 5 similar phenomena have been recorded in Norway, and pieces of earth displaced from their original locations have been reported in Britain, Germany and the United States. Lightning is hypothesized to have caused these phenomena.

  • Mapping the spatial distribution of geomorphological processes in the Okstindan area of northern Norway, using Geomorphic Process Units as derived from remote sensing and ground survey
  • Aerial photography ; Digital elevation model ; Geomorphological mapping ; LANDSAT ; Mountain ; Norway ; Periglacial features ; Remote sensing ; Research technique ; Solifluction ; Spatial distribution ; Subarctic zone
  • The delineation of Geomorphic Process Units (GPUs) aims to quantify past, current and future geomorphological processes and the sediment flux associated with them. Five GPUs have been identified for the Okstindan area of northern Norway

  • Recent glacier advances in Norway and New Zealand : a comparison of their glaciological and meteorological causes
  • Atmospheric circulation ; El Niño ; Glacier ; Glacier advance ; Glacier mass balance ; Holocene ; New Zealand ; Norway ; Ocean atmosphere interaction
  • Norway and New Zealand both experienced recent glacial advances, commencing in the early 1980s and ceasing around 2000, which were more exensive than any other since the end of the Little Ice Age. Common to both countries, the positive glacier

  • The aim of this study was to validate the existence of a lowermost altitudinal limit of mountain permafrost in Central-Eastern Norway by establishing study sites in the Sølen and Elgåhogna mountains in the Femunden area. Empirical-statistical models
