EGU friday

Thin day today, and anyway my plane leaves at half five. Some friends are off to see Mozarts grave but I opt for a sit in the cafe in front of th Dom. The pic follows in the tradiation established last year and shows Me relfected in Something; in this case the entrance to the Albertina. Which is OK but not up to the kunstmuseum.

I shall follow that up with a lunchtime session on Insurance and Climate in the hope that it might be interesting, and a little bit of Feedbacks this afternoon.

    That outfit you are wearing looks familiar.

    Did you hear any of the ANDrill info? BBC reports it as news:

    Tiny fossils reveal ice history
    By Jonathan Amos
    Science reporter, BBC News, Vienna

    … fossil diatoms discovered deep under the ocean floor are revealing new details about Antarctica’s warmer past…. pulled up by the Antarctic Geological Drilling (Andrill) Program, which has been operating from the Ross Ice Shelf.

    Some are new to science; others would normally only be expected in waters with higher temperatures than today.

    … Tim Naish, from New Zealand’s Institute of Geological and Nuclear Sciences and one of the project’s chief scientists…. was reporting Andrill’s progress here at the European Geosciences Union General Assembly meeting.

    That pic’s no good: it doesn’t show your new hairstyle :-)

    Was the insurance thing good? Financial services should at least provide decent food (not that I was short of calories).

    [Insurance was OK... but there were no big piles of zlotys on the tables. No food but lots of drink -W]
