TGIF: GODAC deep-sea video database

jamstec_clip.jpgThe Global Oceanographic Data Center (GODAC) has a webpage of favorite deep-sea videos from the Japanese Agency for Marine Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC) with cool names like “Milky Way floats on the abyss” and “Unusual atmosphere”. What better way to whittle away the hours AND do your research at the same time?

The JAMSTEC video database at GODAC….

…provides streaming of the valuable deep-sea research videos maintained by JAMSTEC, along with various detailed information (metadata) including research location, purpose, video content (organism names and phenomena recorded), and panoramic images.

I can’t post the video because the site runs on RealPlayer, but if you download the appropriate plug-in you should be able to watch actual deep-sea video from at least four different research sites in the Pacific and Indian Oceans.

So, I’ll share this little ditty from YouTube with you instead; it’s tagged JAMSTEC. Is that Benny Goodman I hear playing in the background? Too cool!
