Back in town

Wolves, the northernmost archaeological remains in the world, and a lake-coring archaeology. That was last month. There is one lake we cored, that is likely one of the most scienced lakes in the world by now. A lake on northeastern Greenland in which no one had done anything previously, but which is now multi-beamed, sub-bottom profiled, Russian-cored, archeology-screened and all kinds of stuff. The lake we know as Lake Loonatik. Now it is all about turning all these data we collected into science.

But some five weeks in Greenlandic www-shadow is bound to generate much coming-home engagement. A few hours before I got off the airplane in Copenhagen Enricos work on the Stephanorhinus, in which I had a small part, was published in Nature. A few weeks ahead of that Laurents work on the genetic history of pigs in Europe, in which I also had a small part, was published in PNAS. Some manuscripts were submitted, a few were accepted for publication, and some data was generated. New visitors to the laboratory. A lot to process after homecoming. But this is going to be an exciting month, October is always exciting. It is probably the month with most results from research applications coming back. And I also aim to submit an early (the first?) manuscript on Ryder19 data to a scientific journal. Work as usual in a way, but that is not bad.

Lake Beer Sausage, second only to Lake Loonatik in the amount of sciencing
