From a fairly well presented news round-up programme in the UK. …
I could tell we were in for a ride through an hedge when I saw the science expert standing in a field with her legs crossed.
We didn't have long to wait.
The BBC's computer graphics are well suited for underlining the names and status of its guests but not for explaining the Arctic Ocean's "Oscillation". Considering the list of weather experts on hand for what is normally an half hour round-up of the day's news, I'd have thought someone might have been asked to consider the offering.
Perhaps if the staff had enough sense to come in out of the cold? Altogether a singularly unimpressive performance by all. Well done for getting their names right.
(If they got the names right.)
The Arctic Ocean oscillation BTW, is the same as for all the others. When the pressure systems are flaccid it is called a negative anomaly. When there is a marked difference in the pressures the system is called positive.
Why they couldn't present that in a simple format that isn't easily confused wuith the fact that anticyclones are called Highs and Cyclones are called Lows, beats me.
I thought that that is why they use computer graphics.
