Dear Science Enthusiasts,
Here is our camp in northern Nevada, USA, where we are taking sediment cores for an NSF-sponsored palaeoclimate study of the last 3000 years. This part of the world seems to be a transition zone for shifts in northern hemisphere circulation regimes, and we are obtaining samples with array of sites which should provide insight into the spatial and temporal behaviour of major climate transitions in the region.
The dark skies of the Great Basin offer capital stargazing, and we wanted to share this view with you! When the sun comes up, we are back to getting wet and muddy.
