Last week (9/29 – 10/2) Kathi and me attended the annual meeting of the German Stable Isotope Association in Dresden, Germany (https://www.gasir.de). The meeting spans methodological aspects and practical applications of all stable isotopes and is a great chance to interact with people from different disciplines that are working on isotope methods. It’s been a great conference, especially because it took place the city I studied. Kathi gave her first conference presentation and did super well. It was great to hear encouraging feedback and compliments on trying to make in situ soil and tree water isotopes measurements possible.
Attached, find our presentations.
