OSLO (A.A.P.-Reuter). — Norway’s glaciers are in the process of becoming thicker again after a period of 200 years of gradually melting down, according to glaciologist, Mr. Olav Liestol. Last year nearly all glaciers increased by more than one metre — approximately four feet.

Mr. Liestol does not foresee another ice age, but says that if Norway gets a series of years with a cold mean temperature, people must expect the glaciers gradually to creep further down into the valleys again.
