Pingo Remains Survey Grolloo
Description: The aeuroDrentsche Aaaeuro area is a varied old cultural landscape, shaped by age old interplay of agriculture and nature, including the deformation of land by ice in the Saalien ice age and lot of erosion and sedimentation in the last/weichselian ice age. The aeuroDrentsche Aaaeuro is also the name of the stream that meanders through this area and creates a typical landscape that is declared National Park. It includes 16 authentic villages. Partnering in this project are aeuroLandscape Management Drentheaeuro, a regional based charity which focuses on preservation of landscape and nature and government commissioned aeuroDutch State Forestryaeuro, which owns and manages a large part of nature reserves in the Netherlands. Besides, a research team with students and amp; scolars of several Dutch universities will be present during the first week of the project in which volunteers we will take part in a landscape geological Summer school, which is led by universitairy staff members and Lan
Type of Work: The volunteers will start as a part of a yearly landscape geological fieldwork Summer school project, next to some 10-15 students Landscape history and cultural geography (RUG Groningen), Earth science (Utrecht University) and Life sciences and archaeology (VU Amsterdam), who are invited by Landscape Management Drenthe. Some local volunteers will also participate in the field work, which is dedicated to research the remains of so called aeuropingosaeuro - ice mounts and their remnant which were formed during the final stage of the last ice age. The pingo remnants are the result slowly melting icelenses due to climate change which marked a new era in which the current landscape of north-western Europe was formed. After the pingos melted, they left behind a kind of craters which filled with water and in the to be following ages slowly filled with peat. These layers of peat cover a aeurofrozen historyaeuro, like year rings of a tree, and are to be surveyed with drillings by hand. Secondly
Accommodation: Volunteers are expected to bring their own tent, airbed or matrass and sleeping bag. They will stay at the beautiful situated nature campsite Uteringskamp of State Forestry in Schoonloo, which during the first week volunteers will share with the students of the Summer school. Volunteers and students will cook for themselves in a aeuromain tentaeuro which is provided by Landscape Management Drenthe and equipped with all cooking facilities. The campsite is equipped which showers and toilets. Wifi is available in the aeuroexcursion barnaeuro on the workplace of State Forestry next to the campsite. This barn can also be used as working facility and shelter in case of heavy rain. Bicycles will we provided, this will be the transportation method to the various worksites.
Approximate Location: of course, the camp leaders and partner organisation will encourage volunteers to put forward their own ideas for a recreational program, but activities will also be organised by the rangers, e.g. a mudwalking tour on the aeurobottomaeuro of the Wadden area; a Unesco World Heritage Site because of the worldaeuros largest area of intertidal sand and mudflats. A unique experience Other activities during the week can be swimming, bicycling, visiting the flourishing city of Groningen or the Westerbork transit camp (where Anne Frank was prisoned), museum villages Orvelte, the Hunebed Center, an evening walk in the wilderness. Besides, volunteers are being encouraged to lay contact with the local community for a cultural exchange. Usually, volunteers are invited to have a dinner at local residentsaeuro homes. Drenthe is known for its aeuronoaberschapaeuro (neighbourship).
