Update from the field
All is well here in Patagonia. I can only spend a little over a week down here this season (because of teaching obligations), but my graduate student will be staying for several weeks. We’ve spent a few days getting the big picture, the lay of the land so to speak — we will now spend a few days collecting some data (measured sections capturing cm-scale sedimentology along with detailed stratigraphic correlation at the 10s-100s of meters lateral scale). The weather is pretty typical — very windy, scattered rain showers — however, it’s much warmer than usual, into the low 70s F.
