Barbara Block and her Tag A Giant project are well known to folks at Duke Marine Lab, where I work.  It was fantastic to see her talk and I encourage you to take 20 minutes to see how technology is shaping our view of the oceans and [finally] contributing to our knowledge.  Perhaps some day in the near future we will put to rest the fact that “we know more about the surface of Mars, then about our very own oceans”.  Thanks to Barbara and other ocean scientists.
