A dose of humour

Let’s face it. While weather/climate research is a very rewarding vocation, there are (often) times when it is downright difficult, frustrating, confusing, or just plain infuriating.

    Re “A dose of humour”

    A very suitable candidate for this category appears to be my contribution “Bird-assisted construction of wind roses” in BAMOS Volume 24 No. 3 June 2011 pages 62-66.

      Thanks, Matthias – a very appropriate article indeed!
