SAEF researchers @FeliMcCormack and @selwynox are currently in quarantine ahead of an expedition to discover more about this glacier. They will be collecting rock samples which can help uncover a picture about how the glacier has changed over time. #SAEFGOSOUTH2022
Was very cool to see the excitement among expeditioners when this enormous canyon was discovered under a glacier. It could be influencing how quickly the ice is melting into the ocean. abc.net.au/news/2022-01-21/c…

#Perth just had its 8th day at or above 40ºC so far this summer. This is a NEW RECORD for the season, beating 7 days from summer in 2015/16, with records dating back to 1897. And...there are still five weeks left in this season.

Bright & early tomorrow morning NSW #HSC2021 students get their results. While you wait my quick yearly reminder. 1. You are not your ATAR 2. There are lots of pathways into uni & the course your dreaming about 3. Uni is not for everyone and not always for right now. 1/2

'I never forget a face'. For super-recogniser Yenny Seo, it is no hyperbole. @UNSW psychologist David White (@davidwhitephd) discusses the "tremendous variation" in our ability to recognise faces, from super-recognisers to facial blindness. theguardian.com/society/2022…

#seagrass has washed up on #maroubrabeach and I don’t recall seeing that very often. Perhaps a #tsunami effect has washed it out of #BotanyBay or #SydneyHarbour?

There was not a lot of #tsunami action in the #seapool this morning but it’s a good thing that everyone is keeping an eye out. Stay safe on the beaches while the @BOM_NSW marine warning remains in place for DANGEROUS RIPS, WAVES AND STRONG OCEAN CURRENTS. bom.gov.au/tsunami/nsw_alert…
