Project Title: Modelling changes in the coastal geomorphology of Unst, Shetland and the implications for understanding High to Late Medieval harbour changes in the Scandinavian North Atlantic
Permalink: http://www.nabohome.org/cgi-bin/explore.pl?seq=222
Country: Scotland
Region: Unst, Shetland Islands
Description: This sub-project is part of the SP5 Geomorphology section of the HaNoA project. The geomorphological setting of Norse harbours in the Atlantic is variable, with contrasting landform stability over short, medium and long time scales. Here we asses...[More]

Permalink: http://www.nabohome.org/cgi-bin/explore.pl?seq=218
Country: Iceland
Description: This is the northern Iceland field site for the snow modelling in Iceland project. Fieldwork in March 2014 collected measurements of snow depth and density near the archaeological site of Skuggi. These measurements along with LANDSAT imagery is us...[More]

Project Title: Snow Modelling Iceland
Snow modelling to understand the impacts of Little Ice Age climate change
Permalink: http://www.nabohome.org/cgi-bin/explore.pl?seq=215
Country: Other
Description: This project aims to use an existing process based snow model to simulate changes in snow cover and distribution for sites in Iceland and in Greenland. Changes in the duration and depth of snow cover through periods of climatic deterioration may have...[More]

Project Title: Snow, landscape and people: Modelling variations in snow distribution and melt across the landscape and the implications for human activities
Permalink: http://www.nabohome.org/cgi-bin/explore.pl?seq=130
Country: Greenland
Region: Arctic
Description: The quantity and distribution of snow across landscapes and timing of the spring snowmelt is key to a diverse range of processes, from the hydrological cycle and glaciation through to ecological and human-environment interactions. Many snow-covered...[More]

Permalink: http://www.nabohome.org/cgi-bin/explore.pl?seq=129
Country: Iceland
Region: Skaftartunga
Description: This project used very high resolution sediment accumulation records to analyse the environmental impact of population changes in this region of Iceland since Landnam, and finished in 2011. The main results are in Richard Streeter's PhD thesis and in...[More]
