Natuurgids voor Spitsbergen en Oost-Groenland, met infomatie over de natuurgeschiedenis zoals geologie, permafrost en gletschers

Nature travel guide for Spitsbergen and Greenland
Why are some areas characterized by steep, pointed mountains while others are low-lying? How does a glacier work? What are typical traces of ice-age glaciation which are evident almost anywhere in the Arctic and Antarctica? What is a Pingo and how does frost-patterned ground evolve? Where were mines in Svalbard and East Greenland and what was mined? 

Questions like these often come to mind while travelling in the Arctic. Vegetation and soils, which is usually cover the bedrock in more temperate regions, are scarce and the rocks clean and fresh. Signs of many geological processes can be seen in the various arctic landscapes we travel today and this book sets out to interpret them in a comprehensible and interesting way.
