About the event: 

Have you ever wanted to ski the rugged peaks of Svalbard? Or maybe you are one of those who went there only to find flat table-top mountains? Nonetheless, this talk will explain how your geology knowledge can help you to find some of the World’s most epic scenery for back-country skiing in the high Arctic.

Sten-Andreas Grundvåg is a Associate Professor at ARCEx – Research Centre for Arctic Petroleum Exploration, UiT, and is particularly interested in the geology of Svalbard and petroleum geology in the Barents Sea.

Lunch is served 11.15 and the talk stats at 11.30.
