Database (computer atlas) of glaciers in Norway

The database/computer atlas gathers information on all the main glaciers (total of 2192) in Norway. It provides basic geographical and dimensional information for each glacier. Where appropriate, glaciers are classified according to risk. Information on each event is documented (total of 76 events). Mass balance information on glaciers is included, where available (a total of 453 mass balance years). This database is an addition to the Gridbase, and was created in order to complement the hydrological database already used at NVE.
