At Geoscience we teach courses in geohazards and volcanology. Often the events do not take place at the same time as the teaching, but right now it is possible to follow live from a volcanic eruption. At La Palma in the Canary Islands, there is plenty of activity at the Cumbre Vieja volcano. Watch the live view here.
Associate Professor Christoffer Karoff from Geoscience is one of the recipients. He receives 2 million DKK for a project to construct a prototype for monitoring methane emissions from space. It is the Villum Experiment program that distributes the funds, where 19.7 million out of a pool of 99 million goes to the Faculty of Natural Sciences at AU.
Hear about the Danish seismologist Inge Lehmann when geophysicist David Lundbek Egholm and author Lotte Kaa Andersen talk about her life and research career. It is one of more public lectures in Natural Science that are livestreamed at several locations in Denmark.
Erik Thomsen and Rasmus Andreasen respond to Robert Frei's commentary article. They show that the calculations Robert makes to support his arguments are based on an incorrect basis. When you instead use the best available estimates in the calculations, nothing in the strontium signatures indicates that the Egtved girl did not come from Egtved.
A big congratulations to Professor Hamed Sanei from Geoscience, who receives this year's Ralph Gray award for the article "The Genesis of Solid Bitumen".
