Google Earth: Tracking Tuna across the Atlantic
Tracking the patterns of Bluefin Tuna in the Atlantic Ocean might not sound too exciting, but the use of Google Earth in showing their patterns makes it quite interesting. Eduardo Garcia-Milagros with Encyclopedia of Life has put together some great information about these Tuna. In particular, they've put together an excellent KMZ tour that shows what they're tracking, why they're tracking it, and the results of what they've discovered so far. You can learn more at the eol's Atlantic Bluefin Tuna podcast.
