And now the ICDP Dead Sea project comes to an end. All in all, we have two long cores - one from the center of the lake (455.48 mbsf) and one from near the southwestern shore (346.07 mbsf), and many short cores of a few tens of meters. Jochem and his logging team have finished their work and we are waiting to tow the barge back to Sylvie Gonen's base camp for demobilization. It has been an exciting project that will shed light on some major scientific questions. From all of us here in Israel, thank you and see you in Bremen!
