First10EM Journal Club: August 2019

Hello! We are back.  After nearly 2 months of hiking, cruising, paddling and driving all over North America I have just returned to sunny Broome and managed to do some actual work.  Apologies for the downtime and I hope you enjoyed the collaboration projects.

Justin Morgenstern has sent me another batch of papers which we have discussed and dissected on this months podcast.  WARNING: There is a strong maple-flavour to these papers with snow and moose featuring heavily.  Images may disturb some viewers

So sit back, have a listen to our toughts and have a read of the original literature which is linked below.  The podcast is available on your feed or you can download it below.

My best bear photo is here: so cute!  If you like wildlife photos you can check out my other site which my sons help me out with over at
