How I spent my summer vacation...

Hello again! It's been quite a few months since I've guest-blogged on Bob's site here, but I'm back. And I just wanted to share a bit of what I've been up to in the meantime: my colleague Bret Bennington and I co-edited a book and co-wrote two of the chapters. The book is called "Learning from the Impacts of Superstorm Sandy" and it is now available from Elsevier (there is an electronic version of the book, that link should be up there soon too).

Here is a photo of Bret and Steve Leone, taken while we were collecting some of the sediment cores that are analyzed in the book. You can see them standing on Sandy overwash sediments, which are analyzed in the book. Steve was our student a few years ago, and he was the one who inspired the session at the Geological Society of America in 2013 that evolved into this book. Thanks, Steve! And thanks also to Bret, all of our co-authors, and the great folks at Elsevier!
