Permafrost Observatory Project: A Contribution to the Thermal State of Permafrost in Norway and Svalbard

Project Description
The main objective of TSP NORWAY is to measure and model the permafrost distribution in Norway and Svalbard, including its thermal state, thickness and influence on periglacial landscape-forming processes.

The project focuses on empirical and numerical modeling of permafrost distribution and thermal heat fluxes in the ground, to study the impacts of past and future climate variability on permafrost distribution as demonstrated by permafrost landform activity.
