On 26th November 2020, I had some fun getting stuck into the Scottish Research Showcase. It involved creating a short video that represented an aspect of my work. So I created the (rather naff!) introduction to peatlands that’s embedded in the tweet below. There were some fantastically creative videos made by other Scotland-based researchers, so I’d recommend browsing #Exploration20 #GlobalScienceShow tweets from the day (e.g. one researcher tells their story via an animation in the form of crochet!). I have much to learn about, and from, the boundless and fun world of science communication!
It’s my turn to post for #Exploration20! I’m Lydia Cole & I work on/in peatlands. Here’s my video giving a whistle-stop intro to #peat.https://t.co/1acNuNAsy8

The other two tweets in my offering were:
I’m lucky to work in the beautiful, mosquito-infested swamps of the #Amazon researching the ecology & value of #tropicalpeatlands to people living near them. There’s more about my research here:https://t.co/zzl1dQmIBT
