The last day of work for me in Tromso this time was to put all the shells back into their individual home, and did the final check of the pH levels.
Here you can see the calcein were released from the shell after we put them back!
As all the pH levels were stable, we were ready to go for the next half of experiment.
Aside from the work, I also experienced the beauty of the the northern Norway. In February, I was really lucky to see the northern light on one night before I left.
Also, working on the coast means you might have some luck for fresh seafood! Thanks people there let me taste the “real halibut”! That’s yum!!!
Of course, the most important event in May here is Norway’s national day on the 17th. I was pretty lucky to anticipate this big celebration in both last and this year, enjoying the crowds and atmosphere, especially seeing the parades downtown.
Work hard, play hard. To have chances going different places when doing fieldwork is one of the most important reason why I like geology!
