Spitsbergen, largest island of the Svalbard archipelago, part of Norway, in the Arctic Ocean. Spitsbergen, with an area of 15, square miles (39, square km), is approximately miles ( km) long and ranges from 25 to miles (40 to km) wide.

The Svalbard archipelago is found in the Arctic Ocean, approximately km ( miles) north of the northernmost tip of Norway. It is a geologist’s paradise, having a rich geological history that can be traced back through the Mesozoic era ( million years ago), the Cambrian era ( million years ago), and all the way to the Archean Thermic conditions of the periglacial tundra in SW Spitsbergen book, over billion years ago.

Spitsbergen seldom fails to treat its visitors to a multitude of stunning and memorable impressions of great scenery and wildlife as well as many insights into its long and varied history.

This book provides the background that you need to understand and enjoy Spitsbergen's beautiful, yet fragile and sometimes dangerous environment. The West Spitsbergen Current (WSC) is a warm, salty current that runs poleward just west of Spitsbergen, (formerly called West Spitsbergen), in the Arctic WSC branches off the Norwegian Atlantic Current in the Norwegian WSC is of importance because it drives warm and salty Atlantic Water into the interior Arctic.

The warm and salty WSC flows north through the eastern. The characteristics of a periglacial environment are very long and cold winters in which there is low precipitation. Then there are relatively warm summers which melts ice, this causes a constant freezing and thawing process.

This is what gives periglacial environments different types of features. The evolution of the Spitsbergen landscape largely depends on the geology of the area and climatic conditions (Zwoliński et al., ). In the vicinity of the Hans Glacier, typical landforms of the periglacial zone are being formed.

The Basement - The large-scale features of the Svalbard geology are relatively simple. The oldest formations, the so-called Basement, including Pre­cambrian, Cambrian and Ordovician rocks, occur as a belt along the west-coast of Spits­bergen, in a large area between Wijde­fjorden and Hinlopenstretet in the north, as well as in the northern part of Nordaust­landet and in the southern part.

Geared toward optimum wildlife viewing, this expedition provides plenty of opportunities to witness polar bears, walrus and reindeer, and the occasions to capture some amazing photographs in the continuous daylight are as bountiful as the landscape itself.

Abstract The following thesis is the culmination of a two year study on Svalbard, an archipelago located in the high Arctic.

In Svalbard, monitoring of permafrost is ongoing in several boreholes, including at Janssonhaugen, 20km from Longyearbyen. Heating and thawing of permafrost may result in greater instability in hillsides, increasing the probability of landslides and avalanches.
