JSL.和巨型Isopods

我的第一个潜水潜水潜水在JSL中的巴哈马中脱掉了朗姆酒珊瑚礁。尽管我的大尺寸较大,但我不记得在苏打水平的潜水艇内部感到狭窄。整个时间我将脸部压在一个15厘米的舷窗上,我的脸颊对着凉爽的玻璃和眼睛专注于我周围的三米照明的海底和黑色的公里。它在海底上,近一公里下来,我的第一个看看了巨大的Isopod,。这种大型roly-poly立即,并继续捕捉我的想象力。在我的旅程中,它已经成为了解为什么深海生物是他们所在的大小?通常是单身观察单曲物品或事件 刺激一个问题,你花了余生试图回答。
当然,我还记得关于我在JSL上的第一个潜水潜水的许多其他事情。我伴随着我领域最着名的成员之一Paul Tyler,被认为是深海生物学圣经的作者之一。 Crinoids随着喂养的微观甲壳类动物而移动。他们的田地提醒我肉食花园。海上喷射了他们的下一个猎物。通常过滤饲养剂,一些像小袜子木偶一样的深海肉食物种采取了更大的猎物。

这些经验结合在一起给我一个环境的第一手知识,以前我只研究了远程学习。在我的第一次深深潜水之前,我研究了深海三年了,尽管不完整,但这种环境的理解是由于JSL中的那些潜水以来,这种环境已经从根本上变化。虽然 我最初在关于alvin之前发表评论 ,它们对JSL并不少’s…他们激起了公众想象力。

为什么?只要有令人携带这些环境的探索,我们都可以梦想访问这些独特的地方并为自己而体验它们。我们可以将自己放在[JSL]内,想象一下,并形成一个连接。参与空间计划的人有多少人被激励为孩子们观看穿梭推出。当然,我们意识到我们实际执行这一点的机会是一分钟,但在超级碗中扔触地面通行证的机会也是如此。作为人类,我们需要梦想并建立联系。

JSL.的丢失’S是一种科学灾难和科学的沟通到公众。  立即签署请愿!

Craig McClain is the Executive Director of the Lousiana University Marine Consortium. He has conducted deep-sea research for 20 years and published over 50 papers in the area. He has participated in and led dozens of oceanographic expeditions taken him to the Antarctic and the most remote regions of the Pacific and Atlantic. Craig’s research focuses on how energy drives the biology of marine invertebrates from individuals to ecosystems, specifically, seeking to uncover how organisms are adapted to different levels of carbon availability, i.e. food, and how this determines the kinds and number of species in different parts of the oceans. Additionally, Craig is obsessed with the size of things. Sometimes this translated into actually scientific research. Craig’s research has been featured on National Public Radio, Discovery Channel, Fox News, National Geographic and ABC News. In addition to his scientific research, Craig also advocates the need for scientists to connect with the public and is the founder and chief editor of the acclaimed Deep-Sea News (http://jiaxiangsuji.com/), a popular ocean-themed blog that has won numerous awards. His writing has been featured in Cosmos, Science Illustrated, American Scientist, Wired, Mental Floss, and the Open Lab: The Best Science Writing on the Web.
