Summer school 2015

From August 20th to August 29th, 24 ArcTrain students took part in the ArcTrain summer school 2015 in Labrador. The itinerary includeded the visit of archeological and geological sites around Happy Valley-Goose Bay and Torngat base camp (see photo below) near Saglek. Along the trip, students got acquainted with various aspects of the North, including biophysical environments and the social and cultural setting. They also collected water samples, which will be used for further lab analysis and participated in a documentary produced by the MARUM to promote the ArcTrain program for future students.

For more information regarding this summer school, please read the field trip booklet and stay tuned for the publication of the complete fieldtrip report and the documentary.
