Friday Field Foto #51: Patagonian wind
Actually … I guess today should be Friday Field Video …
After seeing another blogger’s video highlighting the wind of Patagonia, I decided to upload and post a very short video I took this past February while doing field work in southern Chile (~51°S). The quality is not that great (from the video function on my digital camera), but you can get sense of the wind. This is pretty standard … it’s often much worse.
The photo below is the best still shot I have that effectively communicates the wind in a snapshot. This was taken by another student who was helping us collect data in 2004. That’s me on the right.
