Third field trip to Iceland

A field trip to the southern parts of Iceland was performed in September 2019. The study areas Hekla and Öræfajökull were visited to collect field reference data (GPS measurements, field photos, surface temperature measurements) and to meet the collaboration partners from the South East Iceland Nature Research Center (NATTSA). In Höfn we conducted a workshop with a local school and citizens, which was mainly related to the expansion project citizenMorph. During a meeting with the collaboration partners from the University of Iceland in Reykjavik, we discussed research questions related to MORPH. Moreover, we visited the Hitardalur valley in western Iceland to investigate a large landslide that happened in July 2018 and that caused significant morphological changes.
