Field trips: A good way to become interdisciplinary in your own field
If you work in a particular field, you know that it's all about specialisation. I am a geoarchaeoligist that dabbles in chemistry. Like any good archaeologist, I've taken classes in the basics, and I've even had the chance to practise a few of the skills in the field. Moreso with being a geologist since I've done field work in geology far more often. I could tell you many things you didn't want to know about beryllium, and even more things about its isotope of 10Be. And, if you thought it couldn't get any more refined than that, I specialise in meteoric 10Be, not the in-situ type.
