Waves Pound Disappearing Sea Ice

From Scientific America:

In this video, taken 150 miles from the nearest land, oceanographer James Thomson of the University of Washington explains how researchers are tracking these ocean rollers. He says scientists are “using buoys to measure the waves and the ice, and understand how waves are approaching the ice and breaking up the sea ice.” Other scientists show how robotic drones, called Seagliders, swoop under the ice to track the movement of the pack and how it changes as ocean conditions change.

Impact Files will be updated with articles and videos but the podcast is going to be intermittent for awhile or it will be changing in other ways. The site host for this site has to change soon and your Impact Files host can’t afford to keep the one we have, so this site may appear to vanish for awhile, or even forever. This may just be your perception of reality, or it may actually be happening. It’s possible that Paypal donations to help with operating costs may alter this perceived reality, but that is unknown at this time.
