Already collaborating with us within the frame of the FongéLoire project, Nathalie will visit us during her sabbatical during winter 2018.


Dr Bjarni Gautason, ISOR (Iceland)

We first collaborated 10 years ago on the use of bioindicators to evaluate the impact of atmospheric emissions from Icelandic geothermal plants on their surrounding environment. Bjarni spent part of his sabbatical with us in 2016 and together we developed the use of 210Pb to date mosses.
