SA Geology Team led by Dr Van Niekerk in Antarctica

While the country enjoyed warm weather and sunny skies this summer, a team of South African geologists, led by UJ’s Dr Herman van Niekerk and Mike Knoper arrived in the cold and desolated highlands of Antarctica for geological research!

Radio Sonder Grense and Channel 813 on DStv covered the expedition every Saturday, where our intrepid Antarctic geologists, along with Knoper’s Masters student, Johan O’Kennedy, spoke about their Antarctic adventures.

“O’Kennedy is doing a paleomag study of Jurassic dikes related to Gondwana breakup,” Knoper said.
