Introducing Disko-very Bob

Tags: Emily Venables, Matt Wainwright, Podcast, Simon Boxall, Video

Emily Venables introduces Disko-very Bob, launched this morning from the boat and now the UK’s most northerly ARGO float. Over the next few years this remote unit will measure ocean temperature and salinity as it follows the West Greenland current, beaming back information every 5 days by satellite.

    Well done Pem.
    Do say thank you to everyone else once again for making being glued to the Internet for a week so much fun. I have read / watched / studied / listened to every single contribution. Many times.
    Safe journey home.
    XXX Dad.
    PS: best of luck with the Beatbox competition. Is this to be another “Icebergs” triumph?
