Optional Expedition: Norway

For students interested in researching topics linked to glaciology, climate change, or cold region hazards as part of their third year dissertations, there is the option to travel to Norway to collect data in the summer between years two and three.  

This is a real adventurer's expedition where you will experience staying in a base camp on the F√•bergstolsbreen glacier foreland.  This location provides ample opportunity to study rates of glacier retreat, glacial erosion and deposition processes, weathering and soil formation, scree slope development, vegetation succession, microclimate and glacial hydrology.
