    I just heard through the grapevine that our friend, Chris, got funded for his proposal to the National Science Foundation!

    We always knew you were a brainiac, Chris, but this sounds pretty exciting. Care to elaborate on your proposal?

    Hey! Thanks Alexis!!!

    It's a huge deal for a lowly grad student to get a full-bore NSF proposal funded. It was two years and one rejection in the making, and a lot of sleepless nights.

    Basically, we're using the chemistry of coral cores from the Solomon Islands to reconstruct heat and moisture balance in the "engine room" of the planet's climate system as well as El Nino since the 17th century.
