This is an image I posted in 2012, but I checked and most everyone who visits here, aside from Steve S. and James Hunt, wasn’t a visitor back then. At that time I called it “Star in an Algal Galaxy”. Now I just call it what it is.
Linda shared a link to an article discussing ice and algae in a comment for yesterday’s post, so I thought I’d share this as I am pretty sure I haven’t doubled it up since the original post. If I did don’t be shy about pointing it out.
It was 4° on January 4th, 2012, but we hadn’t had much snow so the ice was not covered as it is now. I have pretty much given up on finding any new ice abstracts this year. For anyone keeping track, we are to have more snow Wednesday evening into Thursday but only a few inches. However, Saturday night into Sunday could be another big one. Although we do have a lot of snow here, Boston has had about 6 feet in the past several weeks and is struggling to find a place to put it. I guess the harbor is getting a lot of visits and the brine level must be a bit weaker than usual.
