Kleine Monde

Today was busy, so not enough time to properly write. Instead, to give you an idea of what I do all day,  here is the schedule of today’s fieldwork.

  • 6:00 – Wake up
  • 6:30 – Drive to first site (Kleine Monde)
  • 7:50 – Collect samples (Kleine Monde West, 2 locations)
  • 8:10 – Collect samples (Kleine Monde East, 2 locations)
  • 10:00 – Back at room, start filtering samples
  • 12:30 – Drive to site (Bushmans estuary)
  • 13:15 – Collect samples (Bushmans, 2 locations)
  • 14:50 – Back at room, start filtering samples
  • 19:30 – Realise samples contained more sediment than expected and that filtering will take twice as long as planned, eat food, drink some wine
  • 21:40 – Still filtering, drink tea, lots of tea
  • 23:25 – Finished filtering samples, time to clean up
  • 23:50 – Off to bed!
