Group: Summary

   Geomorphological mapping was used to prepare a morphodynamic map of Wedel 
   Jarlsberg Land, Svalbard. Zones, profiles, and sites for detailed measurements 
   were selected to determine slope processes in qualitative and quantitative 
   terms. Indices of relief degradation were determined using quantitative data 
   characterizing the intensity of present-day morphogenetic processes and 
   postglacial palaeogeographic information. Data were collected during summer 
   seasons only.
