I’ve wanted to climb Mt Washington in the winter for almost a decade now, ever since I first hiked in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. In the summer, it’s easy to reach by car up the long auto-road, but in winter it’s quite another journey: above the treeline in the Whites is a truly special place, scoured by strong winds, dotted with boulders, and subject to rapidly changing weather and visibility.

This is a talk I gave for the High Energy Density Science Association on Monday May 3rd, 2021.
We spent a few days around Christmas hiking in the snowy Lake District.
This is a recorded version of the talk I gave last week at the APS DPP annual meeting. We found some unexpected behaviour in what we thought would be a simple collision between a magnetised plasma and a planar obstacle. We diagnose the plasma flows to determine the relevant parameters and length scales, which help us to understand what instabilities might be driving turbulence in this plasma.
The premier plasma physics event of the year, the American Physical Society’s Division of Plasma Physics Annual Meeting is now upon us. Normally this would mean jet lag, hoppy American beers, AirBnBs in dodgy parts of town and far too much cheap conference coffee.
Cecilia and Rhys organized a last minute trip to the Lakes before the UK descends into total lockdown. We swapped wild camping for glamping, including a gas stove with two burners and a big tent.
Another weekend of exploring the caves of Wild Boar Fell in more detail.
