NASA scientists are using rubber duckies to track water currents from glacial melts to understand global warning.

It's worked before, by accident. A decade or so ago a Japanese container ship lost a few tons of duckies in a typhoon, and they were tracked on their trans-oceanic journey. These ones promise a reward for reporting where people find them.

I love how the duckie looks downright heroic at that angle.
