Rotating Banners

Spent some time today remodeling the website. The biggest difference you will notice is a rotating masthead. Currently there are three in random rotation. The first one is the one you are familiar with. Those of you with us since the old days will recognize the second masthead, our very fist for DSN. The third is a new one inspired by one of my favorite movies. Here’s the exciting news! Create a banner for DSN and if it is up to our exacting standards will include it in the banner rotation. Banners needs to be 756 by 101 pixels. Post links here or send them by email.

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 (, 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.

  1. Cool- I’ve noticed a few Sciencebloggers who have that rotating thing going on. I would like to figure out how to do that with my bears. It shouldn’t be that hard really, I might take a look at your source code to see if it’s something I could do. I won’t steal!
