#introduction
Hello everyone! I’m a PhD student studying atmospheric physics; Arctic snow, at the moment, to be more specific. Most of my work is of the computational/data analysis variety, though I’m working both with data from remote sensing observations and from models. I spend much of my time wrangling large datasets with Python, but thankfully, I enjoy doing it (most of the time)!

NOAA announces the arrival of El Niño

#ElNiño conditions across the equatorial #Pacific have come together and we can now announce its arrival. While sea surface temperatures are above average, current observations and #ClimateModels indicate that this El Nino will be weak, meaning we do not expect significant global impacts through the remainder of winter and into the spring

Media stored on fediverse is inefficient, it would make more sense to store it on the original instance and a few mirriors, and for other instances they only copy the media into a cache with expirery time (if media cache has expired and someone on that instance views that post the chache is renewed), only moving media to a more perma location if boosted by someone on that instance.
