Post from a Scientist: “Looking Back on Our Journey”

Hello!

Well…our journey is trailing off toward the end. We have just a couple days left, so I think we should take maximum advantage of our final impressions. Our meteorological group has finished cloud observations (which we did both night and day), so we are really happy that we can sleep in! But thanks to our teacher, I have started to pay more attention to the sky now. Even when I watch a movie or see a picture with a beautiful landscape, the first thing I do is try to guess what types of clouds are in the sky. Stratocumulus! Altostratus! I think it is a great experiment that will last all my life.

In conclusion I want to say many thanks to all the people who gave me an opportunity to participate in this expedition. I love it! I have learned a lot of new things. I will miss all these good people, we really have stuck together. Thank you!

 To all my Russian family and friends,

Передаю большой привет всем моим родным и близким! Желаю ТьМе, побольше вдохновения, народ, я по вам по всем очень соскучилась! Очень хочу поздравить мою дорогую мамуленьку с днем рождения! Пожелать ей побольше светлых деньков. Мам, никогда не унывай, помни, что мы тебя очень сильно любим и всегда сделаем все, чтобы ты была счастлива. Еще, что немало важно, крепких тебе нервов и долгих лет жизниJ

 People, don’t be scared to dream. If you really want something you should definitely get it.

    Hello, my name is Emily Morales, and I attend Law Enforcement Officers Memorial High School, my question for you would be, you’ve been on your expedition for a while now, what would you say has been your greatest discovery yet?

    • lindsay says:

      Dear Emily, well I’m back in Miami now, and looking back, I love how the expedition confirmed what I thought about science – that everyone knows their own part of the big picture of climate, and they contribute their own part to the big climate picture – some people know the atmosphere, others the ocean, others the ice, and we need all of them to know what is going on with the Arctic!

    • lindsay says:

      Hi Emily, I think the most difficult part of the expedition was that I was always trying so hard to be everywhere at once, because there was so much to see and learn, from the experiments to the equipment to the operations. I wanted to see, learn, and share everything!
