field excursion...

this is a map of southern iceland, the red spots are places we are visiting on a excursion from Friday to wednesday. i'm an assisting teacher on the course... the first 2 1/2 days is excursion based where the students see a lot of glaciers and landforms, the last days the students will have station work at Solheimajøkull (also my field area) where they learn to use the different tools and proceses to make a report about the landforms created be glaciations during time.
on wednesday i will stay in field working for my master thesis for the next 4 weeks, though i spend my weekends in Reykjavik and i have rented a small cottage with a barbeque and a hot pot...

My thesis is divided into 3 parts: 1: 1995 - present, 2: Little Ice Age ( 1400-1900), 3: the old stuff ( older than 1400, which could be 5000-10 000 yr)
"glacial history and fluctuations of Solheimajøkull and landforms"
