Fieldwork in Iceland
Two weeks in Iceland, twenty-four hours of light, ridge hiking, grueling winds and rain, blizzard, sample and data collection. Funded ever so generously by Dickinson alumni Susan and John Pohl, the research trip helped me solidify plans for postgrad studies.
Supervisors: Dr. Benjamin Edwards and Dr. Kristin Strock from Dickinson College and Dr. Meagan Pollock from the College of Wooster
