Finnmark: Garnet Paradise and land of the Sami people

When: Thursday October 11th
What Time: 11:30 am
Where: 3120 Herzberg Bldg.

This summer Olivier Heldwein and Prof. Fred Gaidies travelled to Finnmark in arctic Norway together with Hugh Rice, a researcher from the University of Vienna, to conduct fieldwork and shed light on the metamorphic history of the region. In this informal OCGC talk, a short geological description of the area is presented with fieldwork anecdotes and interesting facts about the wildlife, culture and history of the most northern region of Europe and about the indigenous Sami people who live there.
