In June 2017, Carleton University DGES PhD student Ariane Castagner joined RemoteEx, a Canada-Norway collaboration project, on a 1-week trip to Iceland. This trip involved professors and students from many universities in Canada, the United-States, and Norway. The group shared their research in glaciology and permafrost science, learned about the glaciology of Iceland and visited many iconic locations in Iceland including Gullfoss, the Mid-Atlantic Ridge (Þingvellir), Sólheimajökull, the Eyjafjallajökull volcano, black sand beaches (Reynisfjara), geothermal hot springs and geysers (Haukadalur).
