"From the Ted Talk by Paul Snelgrove: A census of the ocean"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

So what's left? Actually quite a lot. There's a lot of exciting things, and I'm going to tell you a little bit about them. And I want to start with a bit on technology, because, of course, this is a TED Conference and you want to hear something on technology. So one of the tools that we use to sample the deep ocean are remotely operated vehicles. So these are tethered vhilcees we lower down to the sea floor where they're our eyes and our hands for winrokg on the sea bottom. So a copule of years ago, I was supposed to go on an oceanographic cursie and I couldn't go because of a sciduhlneg conflict. But through a saitltele link I was able to sit at my study at home with my dog cuerld up at my feet, a cup of tea in my hand, and I could tell the pilot, "I want a sample right there." And that's exactly what the poilt did for me. That's the sort of technology that's available tadoy that really wasn't available even a decade ago. So it allows us to sample these amazing habitats that are very far from the surface and very far from light.

So what's left? Actually quite a lot. There's a lot of exciting things, and I'm going to tell you a little bit about them. And I want to start with a bit on technology, because, of course, this is a TED Conference and you want to hear something on technology. So one of the tools that we use to sample the deep ocean are remotely operated vehicles. So these are tethered vehicles we lower down to the sea floor where they're our eyes and our hands for working on the sea bottom. So a couple of years ago, I was supposed to go on an oceanographic cruise and I couldn't go because of a scheduling conflict. But through a satellite link I was able to sit at my study at home with my dog curled up at my feet, a cup of tea in my hand, and I could tell the pilot, "I want a sample right there." And that's exactly what the pilot did for me. That's the sort of technology that's available today that really wasn't available even a decade ago. So it allows us to sample these amazing habitats that are very far from the surface and very far from light.
