Yearly expeditions to explore the lava tubes on the famed archipelago will culminate in an international symposium to be held there next year. In the meantime we may all be able to participate as well, if only vicariously. WUSTL’s Aaron Addison, who has traveled to the Galàpagos repeatedly to map the tubes, apppears in a new IMAX film called Galàpagos 3D. Not yet released in the United States, it stars David Attenborough as well as the archipelago’s fantastic geology and biology.
The WUSTL Geographic Information Systems office has moved from the Office of the Provost to Washington University Libraries. Leaders say it’s a natural fit as GIS serves all faculty, students and staff.
