9 July. Day 17. The first results of the cruise are reported

Our last day. We did not sleep much last night and today everybody was awake early to finalize our report. In the afternoon we had a "Preliminary Results Meeting". Guests from the Limnological Institute and Institute of Geochemistry of Russian Academy of Sciences also joined us to attend this small workshop. All students invested their time interpreting the data and presenting each one of the study areas.

We collected a massive amount of data, acquiring >700 km of seismic profiles, successfully completing 122 coring stations resulting in thousands of subsamples. Still many questions but also many answers and material to work with.
