Getting to know you...by Andrew Finlayson

Next up on the hot seat (or cold seat - we are on a glacier after all) is Andrew Finlayson, who's been towing a Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) system around Virkisjokull for the last week, trying to map out the base of the glacier and large scale structures within it.

What that means in 5 words or less: Geography, and breaking geophysical kit.
