Experimental Devices & How They Work (Ralf Staebler)

Video Shot in: 2009

Dr. Ralf M. Staebler is conducting three experiments on the Arctic Ocean. The first experiment measures ozone levels five times per second to understand ozone exchange between the atmosphere and snow surface. The second experiment uses a SODAR device to analyze Doppler shifts and determine wind speeds all the way up to 3000 feet. The third experiment focuses on studying turbulence in the lower atmosphere. These experiments aim to improve understanding of ozone depletion, wind patterns, and atmospheric turbulence in the Arctic region.
