An ‘Army’ Of Seals Gathers Data In Antarctica

“Since 2004, scientists have been sticking sensors on seals’ heads and sending them out on a mission: to collect detailed information about the oceans surrounding Antarctica. Now, all that information has finally been made available to the public.

The data give an in-depth look at how climate change is altering the ocean around Antarctica, and how animals like the seals adapt to the changing conditions. The database is an interdisciplinary goldmine that has already spawned 77 scientific papers in fields from biology, oceanography, and technology.”
