I use a waterproof case on my iPhone because I live in Seattle and I constantly drop it. Ryan Pernofski has a waterproof case on his iPhone to take gorgeous slow-motion videos of waves. I think he wins in “Best use of a waterproof case” category. For more slo-mo awesomeness follow the #slowmocean hashtag on TwitterInstagram and Vine.

H/T to Fuck Yeah Fluid Dynamics for the video link

When not at sea, she has used observations from moored, satellite and land-based instruments to understand the pathways that wind and tidal energy take from large (internal tides) to small scales (turbulence).

  1. Hi, I was looking for sites my grandkids could appreciate re: the oceans and fish etc. and was saddened by the language/ title of the photographer. It is great footage but won’t be using it or sharing. Maybe if he or she must be vulgar maybe abbreviate the co. name.

  2. That’s too bad if one word prevents you from sharing some wonderful art, and in this case science. That’s the name of the site where I found the video not the name of the photographer.

    1. Yes, as the adult I would just navigate the website appropriately. If they were too young to read, I would just share everything but the title. If they were old enough and could read, I would use it as a teachable moment. Don’t make a big deal of it and assign shock value to the word. Just note it has a title that some may find offensive, but there is some really great science that we can check out.

      In my experience, kids have to navigate bad language all the time. Seriously, if you want to be shocked, REALLY listen to the language used in “kids” movies. Potty talk, crap, characters putting down characters to make each other laugh, even physical aggression. One curse word isn’t going to put them over the edge.
