Early results of Bomex Air-Sea Study announced

Scientists have found that the earth is less bright, the ocean more complex, and the air over the tropical Atlantic is hazier than they had believed. These are among the early findings of the Barbados Oceanographic and Meteorological Experiment, as analysis of the data proceeds.

The field phase of the Bomex project was conducted from May through July 1969, when fleets of ships and aircraft, several satellites, a dozen buoys, and numerous other instruments gathered data from a cube of tropical sea and air.
