From Mountain to Fjord
Semester programme, autumn 2019
Explore the geology and ecology of western Norway! From Mountain to Fjord is an environmental course focusing on interdisciplinary natural science with a main emphasis on the geology and ecology of Western Norway.
Teaching semester: Autumn
The location of the campus gives access to a variety of eco-systems, ranging from alpine through lowland to a marine fjord environment. This landscape offers a unique natural laboratory for fieldwork and research.
The course provides you with the competence to critically instruct decision makers on how to improve the reliability of an ecologically based interpretation of environmental and climate change by simply adding geological long term information.
The course consists of three main modules:
- Geological aspects of Western Norway
- Glaciers and Ecology
- Fjord Processes
We have lectures, exercises, fieldwork and laboratory practice. In addition, a science project will be performed throughout the whole semester.
The language of instruction is in English.
