About us

Fjell i farta! er en blogg som skal prøve å nå ut med interessant forskning om fjellskred og geofarer ved UiT Norges arktiske universitet. UiT ligger i Tromsø, mer enn 300 km nord for polarsirkelen. Vi gir også informasjon om utdanning innen geofarer ved instituttet, Institutt for geovitenskap. Bloggen er vekselsvis  skrevet på engelsk og norsk.

Fjell i farta! is Norwegian and translates to Mountains in motion! The blog serves to communicate interesting research about landslides and natural hazards at UiT The Arctic University of Norway. UiT is located in Tromsø, more than 300 km north of the Arctic Circle. We also provide information about geohazards education in our institute- the Department of Geosciences. The blog is written in a mix of Norwegian and English.
