Some Recent Publications:

Research Contributions:

In total I have published approximately 59 refereed articles, more than 50 referred presentations and about 92 non-refereed reports or conference papers. The choice of refereed journals for my publications is dictated by the high scholarly and professional standard of the journal (e.g. Solar Energy, International Journal of Climatology, Nordic Hydrology, Hydrology Research), and by the area of specialization (e.g. Arctic, Arctic and Alpine Research, Permafrost and Periglacial Research). My publications in recent years reflect my interest in various aspects of northern hydrology, microclimate and my experience of working in northern environments.
