High-profile job

With the hot Saudi sun behind them during a 12-hour job, WHOI's Paul Bouchard (left) and Tom Farrar replace instruments on a 10-meter-high meteorological tower on the campus of King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in November 2009. The existing instruments, in place for about one year, were replaced with freshly calibrated ones to make a second year of measurements of winds, air temperature, humidity, precipitation, barometric pressure and solar and infrared radiation. The meteorological tower, about 30 feet from the Red Sea, is part of a larger WHOI-KAUST effort to study the regional meteorology and air-sea interaction in the Red Sea.
