Alumni day

On Friday, April 5, we held the annual Alumni Day at the Institute.

The day started with coffee and cake and smalltalk around the hall. People were happy to meet old friends and colleagues.

The "official" program started with a welcome from Acting Head of Department Jan Piotrowski.

Then came three presentations of exciting new research from the institute:
Rasmus Andreasen told about the influence of the limestone on strontium isotope composition in the Danish landscape and implications for the origin of the Egtved girl and the Skrydstrup woman.
Vivi Kathrine Pedersen told about glaciation and the emergence of fjords in Northeast Greenland.
Hamed Sanei told about organic petrology.

After that followed the alumni:
Max Halkjær (from Rambøl) told about the export of Danish groundwater technology.
Anders Bruun (from QEye Labs) told about the use of seismic technologies from the oil gas industry for geothermal exploration.

The day ended with a reception with nice food and good beer and lots of fun in the company of old friends and colleagues.
Over 100 alumni met and helped make it a good afternoon and evening.

New geoviden magazine

A new Geovide magazine has been published (in Danish).

This edition is about Geothermal energy and contains contributions from Niels Balling and Marton Major.

The online version can be found at Geocenter Denmark's webpage.

New employees

Anders Damsgaard will be working out of a guest space at the Department of Geoscience (1671-122) from April 1st 2019.

He received his Ph.D. here in 2015, working on numerical models for granular materials and fluids. He modeled subglacial sediments and sea ice during three postdoc years at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, San Diego, California, and Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory, Princeton University, New Jersey.

His current employment is formally at the Department of Geophysics, Stanford University, but he will be at AU a couple of times a week. He continues to work with granular mechanics and fluid dynamics, but is always interested in new and exciting challenges.
