Johanna Anjar, Quaternary geologist

Welcome!

My name is Johanna Anjar and I am a Quaternary geologist. On this page I present some research projects I am, or have been, involved in and show photographs from the arctic.

On my research page I discuss the history of the Baltic Sea during the last ice age and the deglaciation of south Sweden. In "Photographies" I show photographs from Jan Mayen, Svalbard, Greenland and Siberia and under "CV" and "Publications" you can see some other things I have been doing. I have also collected some photos and exercises that I use in my teaching.

If you want to get in contact with me you can reach me on e-mail:
