The group studies exogenous processes that have shaped and shape the landscape. With main focus in Norway, the group deals with glaciers, geohazards (floods, wind, storm surges, avalanches), sea level, hydrology, groundwater, frost features, caves and landscape development linked to past and present climate and environmental changes. The group applies a number of techniques, including equipment for coring of lakes, access to analysis of sediments, as well as a GIS and remote sensing laboratory. Our work is highly relevant for public security and planning related to settlement, transport, water supply, and climate and energy transformation.
The group teaches at all levels from bachelor to master and PhD, including several field courses.
