The first glacial hazards workshop has held at Aberystwyth University between the 19th and 21st July, 2016. The ‘Glacial Hazards in Chile’ team discussed progress, to date, concerning Chilean fieldwork, glacial lake mapping, glacial hazard assessment, outburst flood modelling and climate modelling, all of which are key elements of Work Packages 1-4. The workshop included guest speakers Dr Scott McCoy (University of Nevada, USA) and Dr Daniel McGrath (University of Colorado). There was even a brief appearance from the British summer : )
