Human impact, Norway 2002-2050 (with protected areas) Human impact, Norway 2002-2050 (with protected areas)
Analysis of the suggested development of impact on ecosystems through human activities. The GLOBIO-2 model uses settlements and infrastructure, such as roads, pipelines and powerlines as proxies for stress and fragmentation.

  The encroachment of road networks in Northern Norway, 1940-2000 The encroachment of road networks in Northern Norway, 1940-2000
The development of human settlements and the road network linking them together are fragmenting natural habitats especially for larger mammals, such as bears, wolves or reindeer. The nature loses its status as wilderness.

Wilderness in Norway 1900-1992 Wilderness in Norway 1900-1992
This map shows changes in wilderness areas in Norway from 1900 to 1992, and the sucessive decrease when human activities have expanded. Wilderness is defined as areas more than 5 km from roads, railways, power lines and other major man-made changes/installations.

Norway topography and bathymetry Norway topography and bathymetry
Norway is located in Northern Europe, bordering the North Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean, west of Sweden, comprising 324,220 sq km. It has a population of 4,593,041 (2005). Major environmental concerns are: water pollution; acid rain damaging forests and adversely affecting lakes, threatening fish stocks; air pollution from vehicle emissions.

Emissions of greenhouse gases in Norway, 1985-1996 Emissions of greenhouse gases in Norway, 1985-1996
The graph shows the total emission of 6 major greenhouse gases in Norway from 1985 to 1996 with projections to 2010. Greenhouse gases are largely produced through human activities including industrial processes, fossil fuel combustion, and changes in land use, such as deforestation.

Emissions of N2O in Norway, 85-96 Emissions of N2O in Norway, 85-96
The graph shows emissions of N2O in Norway from 1985 to 1996. Nitrous oxide (N2O) is emitted to the atmosphere by both natural such as combustion and anthropogenic sources such as industrial processes and fertilizers.

Emissions of CO2 in Norway, 85-95 Emissions of CO2 in Norway, 85-95
The graph shows emissions of CO2 in Norway from 1985 to 1995 and estimates future emissions from 1995 to 2010. CO2 can be created by use of fossil fuel, by land-use convertion, combustion or cement production.

Emissions of greenhouse gases in Norway, C2F4 and C2F6 85-96 Emissions of greenhouse gases in Norway, C2F4 and C2F6 85-96
The graphic shows emissions of C2F4 and C2F6 in CO2 equivalents in Norway from 1985 to 1996. C2F4 and C2F6 are primarily results of the production process of alumunium. Their atmospheric lifetime is estimated to be around 50 000 years.

Sale of pesticide in Norway Sale of pesticide in Norway
Due to the high latitude and a relatively short growing season in Norway, the number of pests is limited compared with middle and southern Europe. However, some weed species are more dominant due to a general wet and cold climate. In 1985, 1,529 tonnes of pesticide active ingredients were sold. This was reduced to an average of 803 tonnes between 1991 and 1996.

Norwegian emissions of SF6 Norwegian emissions of SF6
SF6 is a gas that is used in circuit breakers and other switchgear as an electrical insulator. SF6 is a highly potent greenhouse gas, over 23,900 times more effective at trapping infrared radiation than carbon dioxide.

Norwegian emissions of CO2 Norwegian emissions of CO2
Emissions of carbon dioxide in Norway, 1985-1997, with projections up to 2010 (with a current measures scenario, as of 1997). Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is the main agent of greenhouse gases that is released primarily from the burning of fossil fuels, in cars, industry and homes.

Sale of pesticides in Norway 1985-1995 Sale of pesticides in Norway 1985-1995
The graph shows the sale of pesticides in Norway from 1985 to 1995. Pesticides are chemicals or altered natural chemicals used in agriculture to control pests, to protect crops. Among these are various forms of insects, weeds, rodents and fungi.

Emissions of HFC in CO2 equivalents in Norway, 85-96 Emissions of HFC in CO2 equivalents in Norway, 85-96
The graphic shows Emissions of HFC in CO2 equivalents in Norway from 1985 to 1996 with projections to 2010. HFCs are among the most important greenhouse gases and are covered under the Kyoto protocol. Hydrofluorocarbons (HFC's) do not harm or breakdown the ozone molecule, but they do trap heat in the atmosphere, making it a greenhouse gas, aiding in global warming. HFC’s are used in air conditioners and refrigerators.

Norwegian emissions of N2O Norwegian emissions of N2O
Emissions of N20 have a role in the enhanced greenhouse effect. N20 is a long-lived gas, surviving in the atmosphere for about 130 years. The concentration of N20 in the atmosphere is increasing due to a variety of sources including a small contribution from coal combustion.
