    26. 26. Conclusion • In fjord lands is the area of impact of rock slides often larger than in normal mountain settings • Norwegian fjord land is densely settled and systematic mapping is necessary in order to be able to prepare for future events • Oppstadhornet rockslide is a typical rockslide in western Norway that has large consequences • Oppstadhornet has moved constantly with low rate and is still moving • Movement started 14 ka ago when the top came out of the ice • Other landslides have been moving since the location melted out of the ice sheet with low rate • Long term slip rates are important information to detect acceleration
