Mountain tundra and rocky landscape in Finnmark province, northern Norway

Description

Information

The mountain tundra and rocky landscape westwards from the town of Lakselv, Finnmark, northern Norway. The area in the eastern half of the image is under protection by the Stabbursdalen National Park. The biggest part of the area is treeless and represents alpine (oroarctic) tundra vegetation (light orange, brownish orange, and orange areas) and bare rocks (pink and crimson areas). The light blue linear structures are snow remaining till July on the mountaintops and on the shadow-side slopes. The yellowish green spots in the river valleys are mountain-birch forests.
