A new series of podcasts explores the stories from geologists who’ve spent their careers – their lives – exploring and studying the remarkable and remote geology of Greenland. Why did they become fascinated with Greenland? What were the problems and the discoveries that drove them? And what was it like working in these remote places, where few people venture – even now?

The series highlights the progress of mineral exploration and geological research of Greenland, told from the personal perspectives of six geologists who have devoted their decades-long careers to studying Greenland. One of the interviewees is Emeritus Professor of Geology Brian Upton, of the University of Edinburgh, who is a Distinguished Fellow of the Edinburgh Geological Society.
