IKKA video by Valentin Troll

Professor Valentin Troll (Val) from Uppsala University in Sweden came to Iceland earlier in the month to be one of the opponents for Robert Askew’s PhD dissertation. Rob did great and can now call him self Dr. Askew. This happy occasion came me the possibility to catch up with Val, whom I know from my working days in Sweden. We share a passion for carbonatite-syenite intrusions, and Val has helped take water samples from Alnö in mid Sweden, one of these intrusions. Furthermore, he was a student of late Henry Emeleus from Durham University in UK. Henry is a star to us as he was the geologist mapping the carbonatites and syenites in the Grønnedal-Íka complex in SW Greenland. This is the area, where we are working within the frame of the IKKA project. Speaking of IKKA. Val wanted to make an interview with me talking about the Ikaite columns in Ikka Fjord in SW Greenland. He uses these video interviews for teaching of the Geology students at Uppsala University. The video interview he did with me can be watched on YouTube here:
