This morning I woke up at 6:30 a.m. - wide awake - and decided to take advantage of the time to research brightness temperatures & Planck's law, essentially trying to see if it's possible to reconcile satellite obs at 10.8 um and 11 um (i.e., if I have 11 um and want to know what the Tb would be if it were sampled at 10.8 um instead, what's the methodology?) I got some good ideas (including someone's MS Thesis... not peer-reviewed, but very detailed on the basics!)
Then I went back to sleep, hahaha. We're socked in with drizzle and light rain all day, so no loss there. I did end up heading out for a run around 2 p.m., and found that downtown Annapolis was equally slow to fill with people. Before heading out, I watched a really unusual futbol (soccer) match between Newcastle & Arsenal- the Arsenal were up 4-0 (they scored all 4 goals in 25 mins), but then messed around, ended up getting a red card at the 50 min mark, and Newcastle scored 4 goals to tie it. For one team to score 4 goals in a professional match is unusual; to have both teams score 4, very unusual! Now I'm cooking lasagna, downloading Reanalysis SST data (at 750 mb per year, for 30 years, and 500kb/hr, it's a SLOW process), and just watched OU stink it up against OSU in basketball.
All in all it's been a lazy Saturday, exactly the kind that's the best!
