The Scientists

Alice Marzocchi | PhD Student at University of Bristol, UK

“I make computer simulations of very old climates (when the Earth was warmer and wetter than today) then I go on research ships to study ocean currents and in the field to look at lots of rocks.”

Andreas Rudersdorf | PhD Student at RWTH Aachen University, Germany

“I’m trying to understand the earthquake history of a remote oasis in the Gobi Desert!”

Bas van den Berg | PhD Student at University of Salamanca, Spain

“I am looking at rocks taken from 300 meters underground in the Southwest of Spain to figure out how, six million years ago, a change in climate and in water flow between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea caused a huge layer of salt of 1 km thick.”

Daniel Pastor Galán | Postdoc at University of Ultrecht, The Netherlands

“Pangaea, the greatest of the continents formed about 300 million years ago, why? how? This is what I try to discover!”

Rhian Meara | Lecturer at Swansea University, UK

“I am a lecturer in Geology and Physical Geography at Swansea University. I have worked on active volcanoes in Iceland including during the 2010 eruption of Eyjafjallajokull!”
