Listening for Bob
Reed, wood, data, 2010

The longer I look at weather data, the more it feels like I am listening as opposed to seeing
relationships between meteorological variables. Especially when looking at weather systems
out in the open ocean, I rely both on buoys and on-shore weather stations to approximate for me
what the conditions were like at sea. Imperfect as it is, it feels like I am listening to an old echo
to try to imagine how a storm such as Bob moved through the Gulf of Maine and what it must
have felt like on the open ocean.
