General research

Based on monitoring data from the Mittivakkat glaciated catchment back from the early 1990th models have been developed to test future scenarios and present hind casts and forecasts of response to climate change.

The emphasis of research project is on the control of climate on landscape processes, on different elements of energy and water balances, hydrology and sediment transport and on proglacial weathering. Furthermore geomorphology, polysequent soil profiles, niveo aeolian sediments, and sedimentary archives from lakes, polysequent soils and sediments form fluvial, estuarine and near coastal environments are studied to elucidate the Holocene climate, vegetation dynamics and environmental history, focussing on the late Holocene, the period after the culmination of The Little Ice Age and on present Global Change.
