It was a great expedition! We all worked incredibly hard: drilling, sampling, analyzing, logging, organizing… and we have very interesting preliminary results. We are eager to open, describe and sample the large number of sediment cores that we obtained. We’ll do that at our 4-week sampling party in Bremen in January next year.
We also had great fun – see the official expedition logbook for many examples. We also learnt a lot about each others disciplines – see the blogs by microbiologists Andrea and Ian,
sedimentologists / geologists Outi and Aarno (in Finnish) and Thomas (in Swedish).
Before heading home yesterday, we had a last chance to talk while celebrating Halloween….
