99 weiße balloons

NYTimes has a video on the use of low cost balloons (only $800US each) to map ozone. It accurately conveys the travails of conducting field research, which doesn’t always proceed as planned. Also it suggests that this field research costs a lot more than $800. The assistants, vehicles (gas, insurance), and supporting hardware (laptops, sensors, tracking devices) adds up quite quickly.
