The main objectives of our trip to New Zealand this summer was (1) to develop a standard taxonomy of New Zealand chironomid types, (2) complete outstanding modern sample collection for our chironomid research, (3) collect more paleo-cores for our Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) and deglacial climate reconstructions and (4) continue mapping glacial limits along the West and Eastern margins of the New Zealand Southern Alps.
