I am a Quaternary geologist, with research
interests in Late Quaternary glacial and climatic history. The focus of
Quaternary geology is environmental change during the
current geological period, starting about 2 million years ago.
Quaternary Period has been characterized by repeated large-scale glaciations
- and although the last major glaciation ended 10.000 years ago, more will
surely come in the future. My main research interests
are glacial and
climatic developments in the polar regions and Iceland, as well as processes of glacial
erosion and deposition. I have spent many months on fieldwork over the
years on Iceland, Greenland, Svalbard, Western Siberia and in
have been somewhat of a mercenary of science, and spent in all 19 years
working in Sweden, at the excellent universities of Lund and Gothenburg. I
was also professor of geology for three years at the University Centre on Svalbard,
UNIS. I have been a full-time professor of glacial and Quaternary
geology at University of Iceland since 2003, where I divide my professional
time between teaching, supervising and doing research. For those who do not
know it, geology is not only interesting and relevant for the society, but also great fun!
Studying geology is a fantastic journey on ancient trails through the
history of Earth. I hope this home page can relay some of that feeling to

Folda, the Association of Graduate Students in Geology and Geography,
selected my web page for the 2006 Internet award. The award is given to a member
of faculty for maintaining an informative and interesting web side. I am both
humbled by and grateful for this recognition.
