Mauritius is best known as a tropical holiday paradise island in the Indian Ocean, but for an research team led by Professor Trond H. Torsvik it is a piece of a geological puzzle.
Cross disciplinary approaches using both seismic recordings and satellite data of glaciers give new insight into the processes that control dynamic mass loss of glaciers into the sea.
Brand new satellite images, that UiO-scientists have access to and are working on, reveal that heavy rain and mild weather have triggered several landslides at Svalbard recently.
