Summer course in Quaternary geology at UNIS, Svalbard
Svalbard with the worlds northernmost university campus (UNIS) is a great place for a Quaternary geologist. Approximately 60% of the land surface is covered by glaciers and permafrost features are common in the remaining areas. My second visit to the islands was for the UNIS course "Arctic Terrestrial Quaternary Stratigraphy" which included an excursion along the west coast.
