Cosmogenic nuclides accumulate in rocks exposed near the surface of the Earth (upper 2-3 meters) as a consequence of incoming cosmic radiation created in supernova explosions. A high cosmogenic nuclide content indicates stable, slow-eroding surfaces. In southern Norway, the cosmogenic nuclide content in surface rocks on many plateaus was, in contrast, relatively low. This indicates that ice sheets and freeze-thaw processes have significantly eroded many of the plateaus during recent glacial cycles.

Digital whole-cell illustration of the pneumococcus. The components of the bacterium are visualized at a consistent scale. The DNA is shown in purple in the central part of the cell surrounded by cytoplasmic proteins in shades of brown. The cell membrane is in yellow followed by the pale green grid-like structure of the cell wall. The outermost layer is a capsule made of sugar strands, which protects the bacterium form the host immune system.
Watercolor illustration of pneumococcal cell division. The painting shows the intricate network of proteins that are responsible for cell division. The green cell wall is on the outside of the bacterium and the brown proteins within the cell.

Maps showing the modelled distribution of vegetation types along a mountain slope in Northeast Greenland (present conditions are shown in the centre of the top row (0;0)).  Changing temperature and soil moisture scenarios are modelled for altered vegetation patterns. With rising temperatures, the potential habitat for heath types dominated by dwarf-shrubs (Empetrum heath and Vaccinium heath) increases at the expense of more open habitats dominated by forbs and grasses. The relative distribution of these two types is largely determined by the degree of soil moisture.
