Colin Sinclair

PhD candidate UiT


Colin is a PhD student at the Department of Geosciences at UiT the Arctic University of Norway. His background is mainly in geology and hydrology. His PhD project examines the suitability of different types of fine-grained glacial sediments (glacial flour) as soil amendments for aiding the growth of cold-climate crops. The ability of glacial flour to provide plants with useful quantities of essential nutrients and beneficial micronutrients as well as concentrations of trace metals potentially harmful to human health will be studied.
