It started raining late yesterday and hasn’t stopped yet. Turns out it’s a great day for a video conference. Andy and I are planning on hiking up to Mud Lake tomorrow and are trying to get all our gear ready today. Our study is looking at how climate change is affecting the chemistry in high mountain lakes. We are also looking at how groundwater affects the water balance and delays acidification. We are hoping that the rain lets up before tomorrow.
I left SKC just before the rain set in. I had a wonderful visit with all of Team SPAW. I don’t think I’ll make the VC today as I am hosting the director of a USGS Weather and Climate Center from Oklahoma today. See you all at next week’s VC! We’ll make plans to start regular meetings next week too. Diana
