Record #110955:

Soil resources and soil erosion in the Norse settlement area of Østerbygden in southern Greenland / Bjarne Holm Jakobsen.

Title: Soil resources and soil erosion in the Norse settlement area of Østerbygden in southern Greenland / Bjarne Holm Jakobsen.
Author(s): Jakobsen, Bjarne Holm.
Date: 1991.
In: Acta Borealia. (1991.), Vol. 8(1) (1991)
Abstract: Includes detailed soil profiles and C14 dating of larger charcoal fragments from various layers; examines resistance of soil types to erosion. Soil shown to have been stable until period of Norse settlement (c. A.D. 1000-1450) and again in 20th century, when modern sheep-farming started. Occurrence of soil erosion well before limit is reached for grazing requires adoption of land-use practice with very low grazing intensity and protection of exposed areas, despite political and economic pressure to expand profitable sheep-breeding industry.
