PhD students course in Greece


A group of PhD students from Stockholm University has visited NEO for a field course. Together with Dr. Christophe Dupraz, they went to Gialova lagoon and checked the lagoon´s biogeochemistry. Prof. Uwe Ring led an excursion to an exposed fault scarp near the city of Sparta. The fault is the probable site of the 464 BC earthquakes that ruined Sparta. A hunt for fossils, in rocky outcrops and in the limestone building material of the Paleokastro Castle was led by Dr. Otto Hermelin. On the last day, the group visited the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research (HCMR) - where Dr. Alexandra Gogou, led interesting discussions on the marine environment, and gave a tour around the different labs at the HCMR.
