Field Work in the Ecuadorian Amazon

After spending ~6 weeks in May/June coring lakes in Nepal, I returned to Arizona, cleaned the field gear, and hopped on a plane to Ecuador to start a July field expedition in Amazonia. I met our collaborators from Florida Tech in Quito, we loaded our equipment into a mini bus, and then we headed into the rainforest in southern Ecuador near the Peruvian border. After a multi-hour boat ride up a tributary to the Amazon River, we unloaded our gear and hiked through knee-deep mud to our coring site. Although I spent most the day soaked in mud on a mid-lake coring platform, I found a few free minutes here and there when I could pull my camera out of its dry bag to take photographs of the constantly shifting clouds as they passed over our heads.
