Meeting with Jackie (Forestry Commission) – she knows 1001 stories about Bennachie, it’s landscape, history and culture.
Then we revisit the School of Geoscience again to hear more about pollen analysis, to understand the process and what the scientists are looking for. We are particulary interested in the part of the process where the scientist (in this case: Ed) has completed all the generally accepted procedures (there is lots of centrifugation involved) and starts with his interpretation, based on his own knowledge. How does he, the scientist-author creates new knowledge. Additionally we are interested in the process of visualising data, what kind of decision making (what kind of aesthetic decisions) are involved in the process of creating the diagram?
