Aurelie has followed the glacier displacement using a drone during the entire summer.
We are very happy to Joanne Elkadi, who just arrived to start her PhD after graduating from Imperial College London.
First sample for Dilan Rech at the Bois des Fournets (Vallée de L’Arve, France). He is starting a Master project at the University of Lausanne about ice-extent reconstruction of the Western alps glaciers using OSL dating. This sample is part of a 10 cm layer of fine sediments forming the Rocailles moraine located 20 km southeast of Geneva. The sediments were sampled using a tube to prevent light contamination. For Dilan, the adventure has just started and he already has a bright smile on his face.
We will all be at GFZ for 4 weeks to visit the Earth Surface Process modeling group (from June 12 to July, 10)
Many of us will be presenting at EGU General Assembly: http://www.egu2017.eu/

Nadja went to central Chile for three weeks to collect samples for her PhD project.
