Back on the reservation.

It’s time the Aber crew broke our radio silence. We’re now back from the Arctic, and have recovered from the “green-out” that returning to civilized society to a welter of conference attendances, doctoral thesis examining and even media work can incur. Not to mention lawns in dire need of TLC.

Please watch this space, as over the next few weeks we’ll be posting more about what life and doing science at 79 degrees North is like, and some of our new papers too. For now though, we are just starting to sort through our bumper harvest of deep-frozen samples and data from this field season, so a lot to keep us busy with.

And I think one team member is missing the Arctic a little too much because he needs to “chill out” between TV appearances. But don’t tell @icybear79 that I said that.
