Blog Kytalyk / Spasskaya Pad 2012: Working on the Field


The work in Spasskaya pad is advancing and going well. A number of, deep permafrost soil samples have been successfully retrieved, across typical undisturbed taiga as well as disturbed areas. 
 
Temperatures are reaching 33°C during the afternoons, making this permafrost related field work unexpectedly sweaty.

Dr Trofim Maximov and his staff Buy Ativan at the station are showing an amazing hospitality when it comes to anything from sauna to food, as well as to guidance in the area and presentation of some of the interesting research that is being done here.
