High latitude images

26 September 2008 · No Comments

Sebastian has been up on Svalbard virtually all summer working on his PhD research.  This week, he sent back a few images taken with his thermal infrared camera.  No need to describe how these came about, I just think they are pretty fun to look at.

The light colors on the reindeer are the only places it is losing heat – around its legs and eyes.  Not anything like the top of my balding noggin.  That reminds me… it is about time to break out my winter hat !!!  Fall has arrived in Potsdam (I have been wearing shoes to work now — too cold for sandals)).

Following are a sequence of pictures taken from the Ny-A webcam taken on Thursday afternoon as a little squal blew through town.
