Expeditions

Between 2008 and 2013, the project has carried out annual expeditions to the lower part of Tunsbergdalsbreen in order to collect data about the glacier. In some of the years, there has also been expeditions of shorter duration to the central part of the glacier. In the years 2014-2016 the project has been working on a re-organising of the project and survey program, so no data has been collected.
