What should my March for Science sign say?


Pyramid != Grain Silo.   ;)  (I can't insert an equal sign with a line through it.)

The world is more than 6,000 years old.   ;D ;D ;D

Hypnotic  - click on the little video icon bottom left to put the sea ice in motion. Might need to zoom in and/or reset the date range clock on the widget.

That's an amazing amount of movement in that ice - much more than I would ever have expected to see!  :o

An air traffic overlay would be a fun add-on.

I hope your March for Science went well. What did your sign say? The best one I saw at the Victoria march was, "If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the particulate."  ;D ;D ;D

Must have been carried by a chemist.

Back to the field for three weeks with N56: https://go.nasa.gov/2rkjOQS Lot of open water for this time of year.

Four flights down and one to go. Lots of good data on the rate of early season warming in the newly ice free areas. We don't have much in the way of broadband internet out here, but I'll see if I can get a picture out...

This month marks the 100th anniversary of the NOAA Corps, one of the uniformed services of the United States. The history of its direct predecessor, the US Coast Survey, extends back to the early 19th century. It is interesting to consider that William Dall, a Coast Survey scientist, conducted the first hydrographic section of the Bering Strait in September 1881 from the USCS schooner 'Yukon' (an OW ship by the way). One of his aims was to investigate the impact of a hypothetical warm Pacific Ocean inflow on the Arctic, and to distinguish its effect from local solar heating in the Chukchi Sea. Elements of this question still motivate our work with NOAA 56, made possible in large part because of the skill of our commissioned NOAA Corps pilots.
