The QUEST Team will soon be joined by Ms. Cinthya Nava Fernandez from Mexico. Cinthya received a PhD fellowship from the German Academic Exchange Programme (DAAD) to study Holocene ENSO variability using speleothems from Australasia and South America.
Cinthya will be based at RUB, supervised by Seb, Adam and Adrian Immenhauser.
We joined for the mid-term meeting at the Speleothem Research Group of University of Mainz at March 7 & 8, 2017. Adam and Beth joined by Skype.
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.
