This Week in Earth Science Data

Data Viz

When your data are so metal you need a sculpture:

US EPA Research writes @EPAresearch, “Our unique reactive fish sculpture moves up and down based on turbidity, moves its tail to reflect dissolved oxygen levels, changes ribcage color to show salinity concentrations and changes color of base to represent algae concentrations.” This Village Blue Reactive Fish Sculpture is on display at the New Canal Lighthouse on Lake Ponchartrain in New Orleans, LA.
