Living on the Greenland Ice Sheet has its interesting moments; one of the more interesting ones is moving “house” . All living, lab and mess tents have to be relocated every few weeks because during the main melt season we recorded an average of ~ 6 cm of ice melting each day. Below a suite of images of how this relocation happened just a few days before team 3 arrived.
Fun all around (specially for me who took the pictures only, while the others worked)
I am currently leading a new interface-geochemistry group at the German Research Centre for Geosciences, GFZ in Potsdam, in Germany and am slowly finishing my projects at the University of Leeds.
In my GFZ and Leeds groups we study various molecular level microbe-mineral-fluid interactions. Further info can be found http://www.gfz-potsdam.de/en/section/interface-geochemistry/ or http://homepages.see.leeds.ac.uk/~earlgb
