A TV crew from France TV went on a trip with a few scientists from Matís to explore the volcanic eruption at Fagradalsfjall on the Reykjanes peninsula in Iceland. The trip was a part of the research project AirMicrome which explores the fate of depositing airborne microorganisms into pioneer terrestrial communities.

The French TV crew captured spectacular footage of the eruption and spoke to Pauline Vannier, a project manager at Matís, who guided the team around the area and explained the research on microorganisms in this newly formed environment.

The video clip can be found here below. The part on AirMicrome starts at min. 7:30.
