Norway is a very modern country. However like America they have maintained many of their traditions. It is usually very cold in Norway. Because Norway has so many mountains, it is very common for Norwegians to be great skiers. The glaciers in Norway can provide drinking water for the people, they help irrigate crops, and they can also help generate hydroelectric power. Though glaciers do many great things they can also be dangerous, if they were to melt very quickly they could flood cities and kill many people.

The glaciers and mountains can also bring in jobs. They need people who will make sure the glaciers aren't going to do any damage and if they are make sure the community knows it's a possibility. They need people who will go up into the mountains and see if there is anything new and exciting. There are sometimes jobs that just take visitors on tours of all of the amazing glaciers and beautiful mountain views.

In conclusion, these physical features bring, many great things to Norway. Employment, crop irrigation, drinking water, and help generate hydroelectric power.
