Ocean sensors arrived

Two ocean sensors arrived from Germany where I used them last in an experiment off the coast of Greenland last year. I bought them in 2002 and they have been in Arctic waters most of the time where...

Where to place the ocean sensors?

Working with people at the British Antarctic Survey, I have to decide how deep below the glacier ice to place the sensors measuring ocean temperature and salinity. The reason for this are cables th...

... furthermore, we need to make these types of data and hard information available to anyone regardless of background, country, education, or political view. By sharing these data we allow diverse interpretations from which diverse insights derive to decide what is and what is not right. Thank you for your kind words and substantial support and interest.

We will need it. As much as scientists hate to admit it, luck always does play a role in all experiments, but one cannot depend on it. In this project, the ice conditions play a large role, but are out of our control. Often it is best to work with nature rather than against it. Nevertheless, luck always plays a role. Stay tuned ...

Yes, that's why professional Climate Change collegues who are alot more prominent and media-savvy jumped at it via twitter and personal e-mails. It's actually work that goes into a paper I am writing and want submit before the end of March.

It sure is, but not all physics or oceanography that shapes our natural world is caused by such warming. There are both local and regional causes and effects that that can make the impact of global warming both less and more dramatic. This is why we need experiments on the ground to figure how all the different pieces of the large climate puzzle fit together.

Yes, that's the goal. And I am convinced that there is a little physicist in us all that wants to know what happens around us every do and what will happen next.
