This episode is the first of a two-part visit to the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute, or MBARI. Craig Dawe, the Technical Support Manager, says of Moss Landing, CA (where MBARI’s based), “Summertime in central California…it’s gray, it’s cold, it’s nasty! They sell more sweatshirts here than anywhere else in the world, I swear.”
MBARI is engaged in studying the ocean by creating a home for collaborations between scientists and engineers, and the results are pretty remarkable. Have a listen.
