Mountain tundra landscape and glaciers in the Borgefjell/Byrkije National Park

Description

Information

Mountain tundra landscape and glaciers in the Børgefjell/Byrkije National Park, on the southernmost border of Nordland (actually on the both sides of the administrative border between Nordland and Nord-Trøndelag provinces, at the edge of the BEAR), Norway. Blue and light blue spots are snow that survived the summer till September and glaciers. The pink-magenta-crimson-red areas next to them are bare ground (rocks). The dark orange areas are alpine (oroarctic) tundra vegetation. Yellowish green areas are mountain-birch forests and green areas are sparse pine forests on stony and rocky grounds.
