QUEST in the Arctic

Norbert contributed to the Sydney Chapman Chair Seminar series “Complex Systems Science Meets Arctic Science” at the University of Fairbanks, Alaska, 28 Feb 2017 and 2 March 2017: One lecture on recurrence plot analyses for the scienific experts and one lecture on “Caves as scientific archives” for the non-expert audience, but both related to research performed within QUEST.

There was opportunity to visit the one and only permafrost tunnel of the world.

QUEST at the German Cavers Association Annual General Assembly (VdHK)

Seb presented QUEST in an invited public lecture on the 6th of May 2016 at the VdHK General Assembly in the Harz Mountains. The lecture on “Climate reconstructions from caves and the importance of climate monitoring in caves” appealed to the German speleologists to support scientific monitoring efforts in caves. A lively questioning-answering session helped to explain the importance of monitoring and the roles non-scientists can play in scientific projects. The talk and discussion got great feedback from the community.
