An exciting expedition gets underway on Monday. Colleagues of mine from Northumbria University are setting off to research landslides in the Alps. Recipients of seventh Land Rover & Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) Bursary, they will be using some impressive high-tech kit (and a Land Rover Defender) to investigate a major hazard in mountainous areas. You can follow their progress on Twitter @GrandAlpineTour or on their website. Good luck team!
The Grand Alpine Tour are the recipients of the seventh Land Rover & Royal Geographical Society (with the Institute of British Geographers) Bursary. The award is aimed at those who want to take a journey beyond their limits and boundaries, that offers challenges for the team and for which a Land Rover Defender 110 is an integral part of the expedition
