Last week Norut installed a solifluction monitoring station recording downhill movement of soil at the Nordnes mountain in Troms county. See the building of the station here.

On Monday August 27, the Minister of Education and Research took a closer look at Norut’s planes. “This offers very many exciting opportunities,” summed up Kristin Halvorsen.

The presentations from Thursday's seminar are available for download here.

A group of researchers from Norway travelled to the summit of the Greenland Ice Sheet to make measurements of solar radiation and snow albedo. See video.

Drones from Norut will during a seven-week period map how long range transport of black carbon influences the melting of snow and ice in the Arctic.
