Disturbed Ground and Landscape Change in the Arctic

Anthropocene discourses shapes perceptions of landscape futures. This chapter reports on a visual survey and characterisation of ongoing landscape transformation in two Subarctic regions , using as a reference mechanical excavators, or ‘diggers’ – the most obvious technology for ground alteration and landscape (re)creation. Surveying emerging landscape types provides important nuances to reigning meta-narratives about space and landscapes in the Arctic, which is important in terms of landscape ‘futuring’.
