2011: Into the Field

The decision has been made. Let’s spend the new year rewinding. 

I’ll pick from the archive and find the most interesting pictures, landscapes and situations I have seen during my fieldwork the last decade. 

New Years Eave with all its promises is still a few days ahead but I feel confident: I will update The Pore space once a week (and who knows, perhaps even more frequent). 

The Pore Space 2011 will take you to South Africa, Mali, Argentina, California, Greenland, Svalbard, Siberia, Norway, Italy, Azerbaijan, and Iceland. Until January; have a great New Year!

Absent - but still present

The American Geophysical Union (AGU) meeting is on this week. I haven’t been to San Francisco for a few years now, but I can’t help feeling somewhat restless these days. Many of my colleagues are there, feeding on the new and exciting science – and probably some great Asian food…

Then again, it’s a long travel, and there are other ways to get updates. One of the new things to spend time on is the AGU blog. The 'blogosphere'. The organizers have invited seven bloggers to present daily updates and flavors from the meeting. The bloggers write from various parts of the Earth Science arena. A nice way to get in touch with both San Francisco and a few of the meeting highlights.
