Danijel Schorlemmer: Well, even though we have thousands of stations, we have a big problem. We only measure the signals on the earth’s surface. Unlike in meteorology, where you can measure all the values you’re interested in, like humidity, wind-speed and so on in 3-D, we only see the earth’s surface.
