This time on Ocean Gazing, John Orcutt and Frank Vernon – from Scripps Institution of Oceanography and UC San Diego – explain how they get automated underwater observations back ashore to actual human beings. Vernon says, “We hope that everybody takes advantage of it… I don’t think there’s any limit or bound.”
Cyberinfrastructure allows online access of underwater observations to anyone in the world in real time.
Cyberinfrastructure will allow ''full two-way communication capabilities to facilitate direct interaction with the oceans.'' Artwork and layout: Jennifer Matthews.
