Abstract

In total 307 permafrost landforms have been mapped, consisting of rock glaciers and ice-cored moraines. The landforms were classified as active/inactive (intact) or relict landforms, and by origin. In northern Norway, permafrost landforms exist down to sea level and the majority of the landforms are relict talus-derived rock glaciers. In southern Norway, permafrost landforms are restricted to high elevations and the majority of the landforms are connected to glacial activity and classified as active. In the present paper, this contrasting pattern is interpreted to reflect that different processes leading to a permafrost landform also represent different ages and climatic regimes during their formation
