As you’ve figured out, this isn’t a list of this year’s most important ocean and climate discoveries. It’s what comes before the top ten list … the brainstorming and thoughtful reflection that dark December afternoons are made for.
But there’s a twist. I’m not the one doing the reflecting. I’m handing that over to you.
So a question for you scientists: What was the most important discovery in ocean or climate science made in 2010?
Get me your idea(s) by December 29th. I’ll hand back the top ten on January 1st.
