The Nordic Geological Winter Meeting is being held in Iceland during 9-12 January at the Harpa Conference Centre and Concert Hall in Reykjavik. ÍSOR staff members will be giving presentations on a range of topics, including petrology, groundwater research, the continental shelf and the ocean floor around Iceland in connection with the search for hydrocarbons, man-made earthquakes and geothermal research.
The Winter Meeting is convened once every two years in alternate Nordic countries, this being the 30th meeting and the first one in Iceland since 2002. The meeting is organized by the Geoscience Society of Iceland in cooperation with a number of Icelandic institutions. Information about the meeting and the programme can be found at the web site of the Geoscience Society.
