In connection with Near Surface Geoscience 2017 in Malmö a seminar was organised at Lund University on 4 September, taking advantage of the presence of Prof. Panagiotis Tsourlos, University of Thessaloniki in Greece, Prof. Jason Gerhard, Western University in Canada, and Dr. Chris Powers, Canada. Students on MSc and PhD level in the project presented results from the Hagfors site, and plans for continued work there and at the Alingsås site. The members of the Scientific Advisory Group contributed with constructive questions and valuable advice. The common lunch at Kulturens Östarp was accompanied by inspired discussions.
