Stockholm – Bangkok – Mandalay – Bangkok – Singapore – Stockholm

In less than a week’s time I will hopefully be out coring on some of the crater lakes close to Monywa, a town which lies a 2-3 hour car drive west of Mandalay in Myanmar. I write hopefully, because we still have not been able to fully sort out how we get the coring equipment into the country and how we will get the sediment cores and the equipment out of the country …. Maybe we will, maybe not? I will definitely keep the blog updated regarding this nerve-wracking endeavor.
Another important stop, apart from fieldwork, will be my visit to Singapore, and more precisely to the Earth Observatory of Singapore, where I will meet colleagues, discuss possible future collaboration and present our Thailand monsoon project. I am looking forward to visit Singapore again, and am excited about the visit to the Earth Observatory, where really interesting research is taking place.
