TSP Norway participants took part in Cryo-Ex/IPY Cryospheric Science Meeting at
University of Ottawa, October 16-19, 2009. Cryo-Ex is a Cryosphere Exchange
program between the University of Oslo (UiO) and UNIS, and the University of
Ottawa (uOttawa) and Carleton University. During the meeting Hanne Christiansen
(UNIS) presented an overview of the thermal state of permafrost (TSP) in the
Atlantic Arctic, TSP Norway results and the Norwegian permafrost database
Norperm. Herman Farbrot (UiO) presented TSP Norway results from Northern Norway,
whereas Bernd Etzelmüller (UiO) presented permafrost
monitoring and modelling strategies in Scandinavia. Further, Andreas Kääb (UiO)
presented new developments in monitoring rock glacier dynamics, and Ole Humlum (UiO)
informed about goals to strengthen
Canada-Norway research links in the terrestrial cryosphere.
