Another Rubber Duckie Story - This One Dead Serious

The Wall Street Journal ran a story last week about the use of Rubber Duckies in the study of the ice melt in Greenland. They were struggling for a cheap way to study how fast the ice cap on Greenland was melting. So they came up with the idea of planting rubber duckies, each with identifiers and email addresses attached and letting the under ice rivers take them to the open water where they will, ultimately, be found. They may even wash up on a remote beach somewhere. Read about this science project in the Wall Street Journal. And I was whining about Eastham's rubber duckie race. Hmmm.
