Mentre i primi cumuli compaiono sotto di me sbucando dal blu dell’oceano, e mi sento un po’ come una gallina messa ad ingrassare, impossibilitata a muovermi in questa economy class dell’aereo, mi soffermo e penso a quella che ero un anno fa.
Yesterday we changed the setup of the radar to better look at the clouds I am interested in (puffy clouds, like in cartoons). It is unbelievable that these small puffy clouds really matter for the climate of the entire planet. But that’s what we found, and that’s why we are here. We did some tests, trying to coordinate with scientists on Meteor, the other German ship in this campaign. Our radars are positioned on a stable table, which compensates for the ship motions.
