Clare Ostle and I are attending the Ocean Sciences meeting this week in Honolulu, Hawaii. I’m talking about ammonium dynamics in the surface ocean and the MaRNid initiative and Clare is presenting a poster on her net community production work. There is an overwhelmingly packed programme of fascinating talks on all aspects of ocean science. Hopefully we’ll find time to report on some of the best bits here over the coming week. In the meantime, here’s a photo from our adventure yesterday into the hills.
