锚线的末端固定到称为台面的甲板上的坚固柱。该线路被支付,以便设置锚点。但是,如果水比预期更​​深,绳子将支付给苦涩的结束。 。 。哎呀。

这“bitter end”任何线都是松散,无抵押的终点。

“与此同时,博索和他的伙伴,与最有经验的预测手和分子一起,唤醒了黛安拥有的最佳电缆,最近的新款和未经过度的,一个最终的电缆,他们转向结束–没有小事在那个狭窄的空间中,因为它重了三个半吨–并弯曲它通过始终处于置位的全部磨损的末端:苦涩的末端。被认为是幸福的幸福结束,以及更大的力量。”

[帕特里克O.’布莱恩,十三枪致敬,p。 299]

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.
