About The Cover

View from a porthole on the research platform FLIP, looking out at one of the booms used to lower instrumentation into the ocean away from FLIP's hull. Oceanographic instrumentation hangs down below the boom; meteorological instrumentation (including anemometers and solar radiometers) is mounted on the boom. See page 1552.
