That’s the sound of a well deserved beer (brewed right here on the island) after a very successful campaign. Though the days (and nights) were long, and we all spent time from our loved ones, we know we can celebrate our accomplishments from this last month. Kippis!
Just as with all trips, packing everything back up at the end is a must. Trying to remember what came out of which box, and fitting all the equipment back in like a Tetris master. But once the job is done you can relax, look upon your works, and reflect on the success of a Read More …
Our time here in Hailuoto has nearly come to an end. We’ve spent the last few days rolling cables (lots of cables), packing boxes and stacking crates. So take a listen to our final Sounds of Science audio clue, and try to determine what sound an ISOBARer hears when the campaign is done.
Another UAV from across the pond, this time it is the TuffWing from the University of Oklahoma. They have been used during ISOBAR for photogrammetry and CO2 surveys.
With our final, and possibly best, IOP behind us, it’s time again for another Sounds of Science audio clue!
Yet another quadcopter, the CopterSonde from the University of Oklahoma is a versatile atmospheric profiler, capable of both low level and higher level measurements. The ISOBAR campaign has been the first deployment for the CopterSonde, and it has proven to be up to the challenge, reaching 1800 m early on in the campaign.
We’re nearing the end of our campaign, with tonight being our last IOP. So you only have a couple more days to guess some ISOBAR Sounds of Science!
Though it’s not very loud, the gentle whirr you hear is coming from one of three aspirated temperature sensors on our 10 m tower. We also have one of these sensors on our secondary mast, 70 m away.
You may have noticed that the Sounds of Science have been absent during the past few days. Though the clips are short, they still take some time to prepare, and over the course of five straight IOPs we exhausted all the prepared material. But now we’re back! See if you can figure out what an Read More …
While doing quadcopter profiles, you can get pretty cold. It’s mostly waiting, holding the remote, or laptop and staring intently upwards. But when you turn around and see this behind you, the warmth seems to return to your numb fingers.
