An EPIC Advantage Program

Earlhamites Collaborate on Research Expedition in Iceland

A research group of nine students and three faculty members from Earlham gathered on the ashy black gravel at the base of Sólheimajökull, a glacial finger that extends 15 kilometers from Mýrdalsjökull, an ice cap in southern Iceland. They were eager to start their climb, but first had to learn to walk.


“Our goal is to look at problems that aren't typically solved by any one discipline. If you look at the big, interesting problems — climate change and others — no one discipline owns these. These are things that have to be approached by people who come from a variety of disciplines.”

— Professor of Computer Science
