Our early career scientists went recently on a field trip to Apennines in Northern Italy. During the field trip they created a blog, communicating simple facts from the field to general public.

Early career scientists in marine geology do not often get to see the evolution of methane seep features on the Arctic Ocean floor with their own eyes. Seismic record leaves a lot to the interpretation. Direct observations of fossil records in Italian Apennines help scientists create a correct image of present day methane release.
One of the assignments during the field trip was to create a blog answering simple questions for the benefit of general public. So if you are wondering if you can swim in a volcano, or what happened when the Mediterranean Sea dried up we recommend that you read Facts from the Field.
