Coring at Site 3 is going well. We are already at -290m below the lake floor after a few days at work. Some problems were encountered - clogged drill bit, salt or sand that led to a drop in recovery, but the team soon had things under control again and were pulling up core after core. The sun is shining and it is hot in Ein Gedi!
