What strange times. So many internet “experts” around, so little actual information. Therefore, I will spare you my two cents 🙂 Luckily, much covid data is available for free and I must admit that it is difficult not to play around with the data myself. Have been working from home as so many others to reduce contamination risk and it seems to be working alright here in Denmark. My son started daycare a few weeks ago. Almost simultaneously, I started an ongoing cough that still persists today. I of course went straight to the testing facility here in Aarhus, but they could not detect any virus. At least not covid19…Anyway, I am now officially part of the statistics. Look me up.
In other news. I just joined the editorial team of the GEUSbulletin.org as a subject editor of geophysics and geostatistics. The journal is a revamped version of the old GEUS bulletin now focusing on geoscience manuscripts with a focus on Denmark, Greenland and the Arctic region. The journal peer-reviewed and open access journal. Very excited to start this chapter of work. Probably time consuming, but also gratifying to read some nice manuscripts. The journal also do not charge publication fees and articles can be freely downloaded online, which I am a big fan of. I generally hope this is a way forward for science. Too much power still resides at the big publishers.
Two manuscripts are about to leave the birds nest (One in RESPROB and one in MAPFIELD). Should hopefully be able to fly. More news on that as soon as I know more. I will also be presenting a poster at the IWA World Water Congress & Exhibition. My first one actually. For some reason I always end up doing oral presentations at conferences. Looking forward to try out a poster. The conference has been rescheduled to May 2021. In similar fashion, geostats2020 has been postponed to July 2021. Here, I am scheduled for 2 oral presentations. Hope everything works out. Difficult to predict these days.
Stay safe out there.
