Share post:

FOR THE NEXT few days Barbados will be part of the fight to understand global warming.

A 26-member team of scientists, pilots and flight technicians from the High Altitude and LOng Range (HALO) Research Aircraft will be stationed at the Grantley Adams International Airport.

Two of the lead scientists onboard, Bjorn Stevens and Felix Ament, explained the plane would be used to observe low level clouds in the Atlantic Ocean, helping them to better understand climate change.

Ament, however, noted it would take the involvement of everyone in the region to make a change.

He said the scientists on this NARVAL 2 mission had come to Barbados on August 10 and would leave on August 30. They will conduct nine eight-hour flights on the south-eastern side of the island. (AD)
