ISVOLC and Excursion guide

Erik has had a good January month and received funding from Elna Bengtson’s fund in Sweden for an excursion guide to natural stones used for facades in Gothenburg. This project is carried out in collaboration with ‘Kulturvård’ at University of Gothenburg and the Swedish Geological Survey (SGU).

In addition, he is part of the research group who received a grant of excellence from RANNÍS in Iceland for the ISVOLC project. The aim of that project is to study the Effects of climate change induced Ice-retreat on Seismic and Volcanic activity (Áhrif hopandi jökla í kjölfar loftslagsbreytinga á jarðskjálfta og eldvirkni).
