Came back from East Siberia a few days ago after three weeks of travelling and fieldwork. Got some great samples of lavas and sediments from the Siberian Traps volcanic province! The picture below was taken from the helicopter.
Barely managed to send off a book review of "Shaky Colonialism" to Reviews in History before heading for Siberia. The book is written by Charles F. Walker and is about the devastating 1746 earthquake that struck Lima, Peru. The review was made for a special issue on environmental history.
