First training schools for young researchers – Iceland, 1 – 10 September 2016.
We are pleased to announce the firs training field schools that will be held in the framework of NATO Project G4934 .
This summer school will be held in northern Iceland, near the town of Husavik, where there are astonishing exposures of geological structures and landforms produced by recent and historical earthquakes. The area shows beautiful evidence of Holocene tectonic fissures linked to the active Iceland Rift, strike-slip faults linked to the Husavik-Flatey transform fault zone, and Quaternary volcanic deposits, structures and morphologies. It is the perfect location to study and learn directly in the field the evidence of Holocene and historic earthquake activity. Landslides will also be seen, especially along the road from the airport of Keflavik to Husavik. FULL DETAILS.
