Se ha publicado en la Journal of Environmental Monitoring un nuevo artículo sobre megacriometeoros. Se trata de Monitoring the fall of large atmospheric ice conglomerations: a multianalytical approach to the study of the Mejorada del Campo megacryometeor (DOI: 10.1039/b718785h), que puede leerse aquí.

Reproducimos a continuación su abstract:

Certain local atmospheric anomalies, such as the formation of unusually large ice conglomerations (megacryometeors), have been proposed to be a potential natural hazard for people and aviation, as well as geoindicators for fingerprinting larger-scale atmospheric environmental changes. On March 13th 2007, at approximately 10:15 am, an ice chunk weighing about 10 kg fell from the clear-sky and crashed through the roof (around 15 m) of an industrial storage house in Mejorada del Campo, a town located 20 km east from Madrid. The megacryometeor monitoring follow-up and the original investigation presented here includes, for the first time, both logistic and scientific collaboration between the Laboratory of the Environment, Criminalistic Service (SECRIM, the Spanish Guardia Civil) and academic and scientific institutions (universities and the Spanish National Research Council). We propose that the management procedure of the incident, along with the detailed scientific research and combination of analytical methodologies in different laboratories, can serve as a protocol model for other similar events.

  1. Buena informacion hidroaerolitologos!!!

    Katherine Davies escribe un articulo en Chemical Sceince donde hablan muy bien de los españoles y conrcetamnete del articulo de Alamilla,….y Martinez Frias en esa revista. Os adjunto algunas frases.

    A massive lump of ice falling from the sky and landing at your feet is not what you would expect on a lovely sunny day, but unusual events like these have been known to happen. It has been speculated whether they could be giant hailstones or maybe ice from aircraft, but a team of Spanish scientists has found that the answer actually lies within complex natural processes in the atmosphere.

    Martinez-Frias used the analogy of an atmospheric ‘symptom’ to say that the real cause of these ice chunks will only be ‘diagnosed’ with an interdisciplinary approach. ‘Megacryometeors do fall. This is an indisputable fact and we encourage other scientists to study these events all around the world to ascertain whether they obtain similar results and reach similar conclusions about their formation.’
