Bookmarks for November 10th
When I’m not blogging, I’m browsing. Here are sites and pages that I bookmarked on November 10th:
- Whale-song recording goes deep: Silently slipping to 1,000 metres below the ocean surface, an undersea glider equipped with a recording device is cruising off Hawaii to capture unprecedented detail on the sounds made by whales.
- Dark Red Spot Found on Kuiper Belt Object Haumea: Pedro Lacerda of Queen’s University in Belfast says he has spotted a dark red spot on the surface of Haumea using a 2.2 metre telescope at the University of Hawaii, the first time that surface detail has been been made out on such a body.
- Ocean FEST: Ocean FEST (Families Exploring Science Together) puts science in the hands of Hawaiâ€˜iâ€™s students and their families. Our overarching goal is to interest Hawaiâ€˜iâ€™s kids in careers in ocean science and related Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields through fun, hands-on activities.
- Marines to build urban training site in Islands: The Marine Corps will expand its use of special effects in infantry training next year, with an expansive urban training facility anticipated in Hawaii and high-tech immersion trainers planned in North Carolina and California, Marine officials said.
- UH Manoa researchers involved in study on perceptions of saving coral reef ecosystems in Hawaii [PDF]: An analysis done in Hawai‘i over several years by researchers from the University of Hawaii at Manoa and Oregon State University (OSU) found that most people visiting the state’s coral reef ecosystems enjoy them and care deeply about them, and will generally endorse whatever management is needed to protect them.
