    It's a film.

    Which you can watch for FREE online on Earth Day - April 22-23 depending where you are. (Time starts in New Zealand.)

    Here's the trailer. Thin Ice Trailer on Vimeo

    Here's the details. Launch | Thin Ice

    I reckon it's worth watching just to see what mad things these people actually do to collect data and observations. Some of the gadgetry is pretty nifty too.

    Sample videos are here http://thiniceclimate.org/

    I try to stay abreast of the environment everyday by reading whatever might be published by reputable scientific reports.

    Me too.

    I've watched all 7 of the video extracts in the oceanography group. Some of their procedures are pretty dangerous. I was glad to see that they're a lot more safety conscious than the little I've seen of what some glaciologists do - I reckon they're science's version of extreme sports. (Though some of the vulcanologists might beat them there.)

    What I got out of the videos was the combination of seeing the samples being taken and the not-in-publication-language descriptions by scientists means that I now really get how thermohaline circulation happens. It hasn't changed my understanding of where and when the important parts of the process take place, it's just more "real" to me.
