I study the post-Caledonian topographic evolution of Western Norway, more specifically the Nordfjord area, with the focus on the following:

  • Thermochronology
  • K-Ar fault gouge dating
  • U-Pb calcite dating
  • Brittle structural evolution
  • Remote sensing of high altitude low-relief surfaces
