Natural resources and the environment 1998

Natural Resources and the Environment 1998 provides information on important Norwegian natural resources and the natural environment in the form of statistics and analyses. The information is primarily based on Statistics Norway's own material, but data have also been obtained from other sources.

The publication describes the status and trends for a number of important resource and environmental parameters in Norway, with particular emphasis on the impact of human activities on the environment through pollution and the use of natural resources. The analyses look at the relationships between the use of resources, the environment and the economy. An appendix of tables provides more detailed statistics on natural resources and environmental conditions in Norway.
