I know, I know.
In my defense, the last months have been insanely busy. There was the usual dip in activity as the summer arrived and I was able to focus on some research problems. Then, as summer got going, I discovered that the postdoc fellowship at the Laboratoire Magmas et Volcans in France was going to happen, and from that point onward finding time to dedicate to this became somewhat secondary to the numerous other things which needed my attention. With the turbidity modelling postdoc finishing at the end of September, and the France postdoc starting three days later, it is really only now – 12 days after my arrival – that I’ve got myself sufficiently settled and arranged that I can begin getting back to a regular schedule.
So, my apologies for absence, and an assurance that normal service is now resuming.
I’m thoroughly enjoying the new work – although at the moment it’s focussing a lot on getting back up to speed with the literature related to fluidised gas-particle currents, and designing the flume apparatus that I’ll be using over the next 12 months. Oh, and getting my French slightly above the abysmal pit in which it currently resides.
C’est la vie.
See, it’s coming along already.
