Honorary doctors at the Faculty of Science 2018

Karna Lidmar-BergströmKarna Lidmar-Bergström has made significant contributions in developing methods for the analysis of primary rock’s large-scale land forms in relation to the younger sedimentary bedrock of the Southern Swedish Dome as a model area, and through the study of remnants of preglacial weathering coverings, she has convincingly demonstrated the significance of deep weathering for landscape development. The latter has taken place in a fruitful collaboration with the Department of Earth Sciences, University of Gothenburg, through supervision and research collaboration. Karna Lidmar-Bergström’s focus on the importance of knowledge about geomorphology in society, exemplified by a large number of education and outreach articles and in recent years by editorials in daily press, should also be noted.
