GPS Tracks Leatherback Turtle Hotspots To Prevent Fishing Deaths
2014-01-09 07:50:15

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online One of the most endangered species in the world, the Pacific Ocean's leatherback sea turtle population has declined by more than 90 percent since 1980. One of the greatest causes of this species' death is industrial longline fishing, which sets thousands of hooks in the ocean to catch fish, but sometimes catch turtles as well. Research teams use modern GPS technology to predict where fisheries and turtles will interact in order...

Word of the Day
tesla
  • The unit of magnetic flux density in the International System of Units, equal to the magnitude of the magnetic field vector necessary to produce a force of one newton on a charge of one coulomb moving perpendicular to the direction of the magnetic field vector with a velocity of one meter per second. It is equivalent to one weber per square meter.
This word is named for Nikola Tesla, the inventor, engineer, and futurist.
