The team's main task is quaternary mapping and research. The Quaternary Geology team composed of  researchers with expertise in subject fields terrestrial Quaternary Geology, geomorphology, stratigraphy, landscape development, shoreline displacement, glacial processes and sedimentology.

At the national level  we are responsible for quaternary mapping in Norway, mainly at the scale 1: 50 000, but also in larger and smaller scales, incl. scale 1: 250,000 for counties.

We conduct research toward NGU's main goal "improve knowledge of the country's geological composition and processes". The main focus our research is landscape development, glacial history, stratigraphy and deglaciation chronology on the mainland, through different projects. The team undertakes research activities in the northern regions, mainly in the Svalbard archipelago, where we work with the Quaternary and modern landscape processes, as well as developing mapping techniques for polar regions. The majority of research activities are externally funded. Research projects are run in cooperation with national and international partners.
