Back on Days
After a few false starts with high wind, we eventually completed a blimp flight on Sunday afternoon bringing the season's total to eight. Hopefully we'll get a few more in before the sea-ice breaks up and the depletion events stop. (Tamsin's writing loads of science articles at the moment, so check out her blog for more details on ozone depletion).
In true Halley style, the weather soon returned to taunt us and from Sunday evening till about a hour ago, we were back in blizzard mode. This one set new records for the year, with the wind speed tracking steadily upwards and peaking at over 60knts before the anemometers begged for mercy and gave up. Thankfully the weather haven survived!
Must stop now as the wind's dropped enough to head to the lab and sort the wind instruments out.
