Notes from the Field

Radiometer is perfectly perched

February 21st, 2010 by Ed Kim

A big milestone today: after the DC snowstorm, the cross-country shipping, the snowcat trip up the mountain, and the days of wiring, we finally got radiometer data today. Dr. Mike Durand and Ty Atkins (U. Colorado) worked really hard to set up a stand built by Goddard engineers to hold the radiometer at just the right angle…without sliding off into the snow. We don’ t want the radiometer to get any ideas just because the Olympics are going on.
