Latest from World Ocean Radio: 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.

Listen to the episode here and you can listen to previous episodes here. World Ocean Radio, a project of the W2O, is a weekly series of five-minute audio essays. Peter Neill, Director of the World Ocean Observatory (W2O) and host of World Ocean Radio, provides coverage of a broad spectrum of ocean issues from science and education to advocacy and exemplary projects.
