Underwater Observation

Advances in technology bring us new, visionary underwater devices to record and transmit observational data. In this episode of World Ocean Radio, host Peter Neill will discuss two such observatories: Aquarius, operated by Florida International University, and Sea Orbiter, a conceptual vehicle currently in research and development by architect Jacques Rougerie--both technological advances that may have, in the past, existed only in our imaginations.

Peter Neill, host of World Ocean Radio, provides coverage of a broad spectrum of ocean issues from science and education to advocacy and exemplary projects. World Ocean Radio, a project of the World Ocean Observatory, is a weekly series of brief audio essays available for syndicated use at no cost by community radio stations worldwide.
