Tanguro Summit

I just spent a lovely week in the field with colleagues from around the world, discussing the next few years of projects at Tanguro, the field site I work at in the southeastern Amazon.  I was also finishing up some final soil measurements and introducing the new postdoc working with the group to what I’ve been working on the last two years.

It’s kind of amazing to realize that in only 2012 I was arriving at Tanguro for the first time, speaking not a lick of Portuguese and not sure I was going to pull this whole thing off.  Now it’s practically a home away from home.

Bulk density measurements… That's how ecosystem ecologists roll. #claycontent #fieldblog

Heading back to the field for a few weeks in Jan/Feb 2015 and for the first time ever am sad to be leaving the field so soon.  Normally I’m itching to get back to my own bed, but this time I’m just bummed to be jetting away from the forest after only a few days.
