Picture of Martin Lake by Broxton Bird

I’m so stoked that our lab group just published “Midcontinental Native American population dynamics and late Holocene hydroclimate extremes” in Nature Scientific Reports.

It seems like ages ago when we first collected our sediment cores from Martin Lake in 2013.

Getting some good sandwiches with James at Giordano Bros (Pittsburgh-style eats). James had a great poster presentation about microbial sulfur cycling in his Pacific Northwest lakes.
