Hundreds of subglacial lakes have been discovered beneath the Antarctic ice sheet over the past 20 years. Were subglacial lakes also present beneath the Fennoscandian ice sheets? If so, how have the existence and drainage of such lakes affected the landscape and the geomorphology of Norway?
To better understand and describe the processes related to the Earth’s physical features and the society it is increasingly important to use remote sensing and geographical information systems (GIS) as tools for managing large amounts of spatial and geographically-referenced information.
A large international study - Global Land Ice Measurements from Space (GLIMS) shows that Earth’s glaciers are shrinking with only a few exceptions. The scientists behind the study have applied satellite images to study the glaciers over the recent decades. The comprehensive report is now published as a book and an e-book.
