This week, I am precisely two years into the project! Besides this memorial milestone, we also finished one of the goals of our project! We finished the design of our logger for the upcoming fieldwork this January.
Last month I visited Dominique Fillipi, a well known and respected physicist who is specialized in developing Bio-loggers. Together with Dominique, I designed the “infrasound-sputnik”. This is the very first bio-logger, which besides tracking albatrosses, also can measure movement (acceleration), barometric pressure, differential pressure (infrasound), and wind speed/direction.
We worked on the hardware and software and did some first testing. We are all very excited and look forward to the outcome of the logger during the upcoming fieldwork.
Soon more updates on the logger!
