Deep Sea Explorers and Elephant Seals-PW075

On the podcast we hear an interview with deep sea researcher Linda Snook whose work takes her 1500 feet down underwater in a tiny submersible. The creatures she sees few people lay eyes on in a lifetime; giant sea bass, strange worms, and lantern fish are some of the surprises she finds on old oil rigs. Linda was part of the 2005 Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary Deep Habitat Assemblages – Research Monitoring and Assessment team and has co-authored a number of articles on her research for NOAA and the Bulletin of Marine Science. She also recently participated in a study on the effects of the electromagnetic fields (EMFs) generated by submarine power cables on aquatic organisms. Then, stories from Cabrillo College journalism students on topics ranging from elephant seals to landfills to sudden oak death. Air Date: June 17, 2018 on KSCO radio station AM1080
