Biography

Ari Trausti Guđmundsson (b. 1948) was educated at the Universities of Oslo and Reykjavik (Haskoli Islands), emphasizing geophysics and geology. He is a well-known author and has published more than 20 books on nature in Iceland, environmental issues and travelling and mountaineering in Iceland. He has been active in e.g. tourism and produced or hosted many programs on science and nature on radio and television and is the author of CDs/DVDs and other material for scientific exhibitions. He was also a weatherman on TV for more than a decade. Presently, Ari Trausti works free-lance, including consultancy work for Linuhonnun Consulting.

Halldór Kjartansson (1941-2005) studied geology in Gottingen, Germany, concentrating on geochemistry. He started a career as a geologist in Iceland but shifted his main attention to lecturing in geology in the early 1970s. He pioneered and hosted a number of educational and documentary programs on geology on Icelandic television along with Ari Trausti Gudmundsson. They also wrote books on the same subject in English and German: Guide to the Geology of Iceland/Wegweiser durch die Geologie Islands and Earth in Action/Land im Werden. In addition, Halldor wrote educational material in geology and an overview of Icelandic minerals.
