Iberian Permafrost Conference in the Pyrenees

25-27th June 2013, Vall de Núria (Eastern Pyrenees)

Under the organization of the Research Group “Landscape research and Mediterranean mountain palaeoenvironments” from the University of Barcelona, the Iberian Permafrost Conference will be held in Vall de Núria, in the heart of the Eastern Pyrenees, between the 25th and 27th of June. This conference is hosted by the International Permafrost Association.

Researchers working on permafrost, soil processes and geomorphology are particularly invited to participate in this conference and share their scientific results.

Please visit the website of the Conference (http://paisatge.wix.com/servei_ub/ipa-2013#!__ipa-2013) for further information about the program, session details, deadlines, field trips and other activities.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Núria in June 2013!

About Marc Oliva

Since 2010 Marc Oliva is working as a postdoctoral researcher at the Centro de Estudos Geográficos of the University of Lisbon, where he develops his research and teaching activities. He graduated in Geography in 2004 and finished his PhD in 2009 both at the University of Barcelona. He received the “Doctor Europaeus” Mention and was recognized with the prestigious Outstanding PhD Award of this university. His dissertation focused on the reconstruction of the Mid Holocene palaeoecological evolution in Sierra Nevada, a high semiarid mountain environment in southern Iberia. In 2006 he also obtained two MSc degrees (Geography and Applied Climatology). His on-going research interests include the study of present and past geomorphological processes in cold-climate environments. Through the study of the sedimentary record, the past environmental and climate conditions can be inferred. At present he is coordinating a research project in Antarctica (HOLOANTAR, http://holoantar.weebly.com/) and conducting research activities in the High Arctic and in mid-latitude mountain environments.
