Day 4 - Our first (basalt) samples
Yesterday’s disappointment at retrieving only carbonate rocks was replaced by joy in response to sampling basalt on dredge 3.
After a gruelling few hours of re-learning rock identification from undergraduate geology, we mourned our rusty skills over doughnuts.
Presentation on reconstructions of North America
Later in the day, Edward Clennett gave a stellar talk on using seismic tomography to improve tectonic reconstructions of North America using GPlates.
Best sunset yet!
Tonight’s sunset was by far the most impressive…
Later in the trip I’m going to put together a gallery of sunrises. Also here is a random photo of banoffee pie.
I think I’ll put together a food gallery as well 😄
