Check out new research from Fred’s lab. Many thanks to Amanda L. Laverty for sharing her work. VibrioVulnificus_Poster
Victoria Hill deployed her first research buoy yesterday. She is trying to find out why the sea ice in the arctic is melting faster than expected. The buoy has temperature and light sensors. It will report data to Victoria via satellite.
Victoria Hill is in the Arctic. Check out her video blog about the buoy she will use to study the sea ice. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rwYQtZ-kAxI&noredirect=1
Victoria packs for the arctic. See just how many socks Victoria is taking with her as she braves the arctic cold to study the sea ice.
“This week I am heading Barrow, Alaska where we will wait for the weather to clear and take a helicopter about 150 nautical miles out to sea and land on the ice to deploy bouys. These buoys will measure the temperature and light absorption of the water under the ice.”
