Glacier-Landscape Interactions, Iceland

Experience glacial processes first-hand and their impacts on the dynamic tectonic landscape of Iceland.

During this week-long field course, you will be based in Southern Iceland, where glaciers interact with volcanic environments and processes of this mid-ocean ridge island. The focus of this practical field course is to understand how glaciers interact with the surrounding landscape, as well as developing your practical field skills such as observation and recording, mapping geomorphological features and logging of snowpack properties.
