Siggi and the Falcon order

My former PhD supervisor Sigurður Reynir Gíslason (Siggi) was awarded the Order of the Falcon by the President of Iceland in early January 2020. The reason for awarding him was his “scientific achievements within the field of geochemistry and pioneering of carbon sequestration techniques in geothermal areas of Iceland”.

This of course called for a proper celebration. Hence, eight of Siggi’s former and present PhD students and post docs surprised him with a nice lunch at the Hannesarholt restaurant in Reykjavík. Here we all are toasting for Siggi with champagne. Congrats Siggi!
