Geology student Nils Gies flew over the Geldingadalir volcanic eruption

No one could have missed the Geldingadalir volcanic eruption on Iceland. Nils Gies, a master’s student at the Department of Earth Sciences, happened to be in the right place at the right time (especially if you are a geologist). He had the opportunity to fly over the whole eruption area and also to get near the volcano, experience the atmosphere, and collect samples.
