Just One Look

For those people pining for snow after Boulder's oddly temperate midwinter, ponder the seriousness of weather in the Arctic. A clutch of ATD and JOSS staff went to the ice pack north of Alaska last October to install networking equipment and four portable automated mesonet stations, including the one shown above. A color-photo gallery of the visit--made on behalf of the Surface Heat Budget of the Arctic Ocean (SHEBA) project--can be found on pages 5 and 6. Also included is an update from project participants, who have found the ice beneath their feet to be unexpectedly mobile. (Photo courtesy of ATD.)
