Video: "The Taggers, Part 2"

In part one of “The Taggers” some of the researchers were introduced and a short sample of the tagging and the software used were given.  Now, in part 2 we’ll experience more of the expedition, meet more scientists and get a better look at the information collected by the tags after it is loaded into computer programs.  These animation applications were authored by Dr. Colin Ware from the University of New Hampshire and they are revolutionizing our perceptions of whale behavior.  You will also meet Dr. Elliot Hazen, from Duke University, who studies predator/prey relationships in the water column.

Now, on any expedition of this type there are numerous projects being conducted and these films will only highlight some but this serves to give the viewers a real idea of what it takes to bring research theory into the real world.  All the logistics, equipment, platforms and personnel are astounding.  Nearly 100 participants have to be fed, housed and provided with the technical facilities to carry out meaningful science, even e-mail fed by satellite.

All this being said, step into my world for a few minutes and experience part 2 of “The Taggers”, enjoy…  RM
