Last week I was in Băile Tușnad, a spa town in Romania for the INTIMATE training school. I gave a lecture featuring a cloud (one of many the students saw that week — it rained incessantly), some proxy data and a misquote from Hamlet. I’ll post a link to the lecture once I’ve fixed a couple of glitches. The training school focused on Lake Saint Anne, a beautiful 29000-year old volcanic crater lake and Mohos bog in the adjacent crater.
A core was collected from the lake and over the coming months the students who attended the course will work up some of the proxies with a view to writing a joint publication.
In the cloudy forests around the lake, predators lurk.
I was happy not to meet the creator of the footprint.
