Over the month of August, I had the pleasure of participating in the 2018 International Volcanology Field School, Kamchatka session and the following 10th Biennial Workshop on Japan-Kamchatka-Alaska Subduction Processes (JKASP-2018). Both events took place in Kamchatka, Russia at a field camp for the field school and the city of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky for the conference. The whole trip was a great opportunity to see some amazing volcanoes and witness international collaboration of scientists all working from remote areas of Russia, North America, and Japan.
Research to improve environmental sustainability
Over the ten-year history of the Riddell Faculty, numerous working relationships with organizations, communities, and institutions in Canada’s North have been developed. Two important partnerships, with the University College of the North (UCN) and the Northern Manitoba Mining Academy (NMMA), seek to provide greater access to training and educational opportunities for northern Manitobans.
