Geomorphological Mapping, Wedel Jarlsberg Land, Svalbard, Version 1

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.
