Last week two TSP Norway members, Hanne H. Christiansen, UNIS and Lars H. Blikra, ICG/NGU went back to the mountain Nordnes to collect the first full year of rock and ground surface temperatures from the different installations done last year (August 2007) and to continue the collaboration with the inter municipality, local (Fjellskred i Troms) rock slide monitoring project www.fjellskreditroms.no.

During summer three shallow 2.5 m boreholes were drilled at 625 m, 800 m and 900 m asl on Nordnes in close collaboration with the inter municipality, local (Fjellskred i Troms) rock slide monitoring project. The lower two are located relatively close to the open cracks in the rock slide area. During last week we instrumented these boreholes with thermistor strings and associated dataloggers to start continuous temperature monitoring.

Again this year we had excellent collaboration with the local ‘Fjell i Troms’ project also with respect to logistics, allowing us to use their ATV vehicles to get up to our working sites on Nordnes and letting us stay in their mountain station.
Fieldwork on Nordnes is very effective when using an ATV.
