I just received the beautiful lake-view above and, oh boy, is that an important picture!
It means that we made it happen, despite the ongoing pandemic and the kilos of extra administrative chaos it brought with it: we sent a research team to Abisko, northern Sweden!
Today, the first two members of the team arrived, later this month four more will dare international travel. What can and cannot be achieved in the field will remain a mystery for a while (the main bottleneck will be crossing the border to Norway), but at least several of our ongoing and new research ideas will see fulfillment.
And the significance of that can simply not be overstated.
