3 January 2011
Only two days left until the departure to Thailand for more fieldwork. This time we will focus on southern Thailand. We plan to core wetlands and lakes along the coast and in the provinces of Trang and Krabi, sample speleothems in some selected caves and install rain gauges. The sediments and speleothems will provide us with a detailed picture on past changes in monsoon intensity in southern Thailand and the rain samples will be measured for their isotopic composition. Our group will be pretty large and will consist of Akkaneewut Chabanborn, Sakonvan Chawchai, Wichuratree Klubseang, Ludvig Löwemark, Sheri Fritz, and Christophe Sturm. Moreover, Nerys Evans from www.plasticbuddha.co.uk will join us and document the fieldwork. We will start with a workshop in Bangkok on January 7 to discuss the results we have so far and then we will head south along the coast to one of the National Parks where Akkaneewut has identified a promising wetland. Most of our work will however be concentrated around Krabi and Trang. Right after fieldwork I will travel to Singapore to meet Dwikorita Karnawati from Gadjah Mada University in Yogyakarta to discuss a possible future joint research project in Indonesia. The trip back from Singapore to Bangkok will be by train, with one stop in Georgetown, Penang.
