1. Bawden Rocks Underwater Footage - St Agnes, Cornwall

    03:57

    from SubLittoral Films / Added

    This is a low quality upload of the film for speed of uploading. It was filmed using a Bowtech camera transmitting up a cable to an A/D converter into a laptop running Cyberlink Director. The first couple of scenes featuring the dogfish (or catshark, depending on whether you are old or new school) had a connection issue, hence the intermittent wobbliness. This was resolved the second time the camera went into the water.

      Only when you turn the water crystal clear can you appreciate the depths to which sperm whales are capable of diving - effectively while holding their breath ! Created using Maya and Terragen.

          Matthew Kuo tells us how tiny worm faecal pellets affect how oil pipelines sit on the seabed. Check out the rest of the series here: www.vimeo.com/channels/micro Matthew Kuo: “I have a research interest in the geotechnical behaviour and biological origin of deep ocean clay crusts. These crusts are found in many areas that are of particular importance to offshore oil and gas developments, including the Gulf of Guinea, Gulf of Mexico and the Mediterranean Sea. I have discovered that sediments from these areas contain millions of tiny faecal pellets that have been produced by burrowing invertebrates (worms). These pellets, whose abundance in the sediment may range from 30% to 60% by dry mass, are robust and much stronger than undigested material. Their presence and mechanical behaviour can therefore explain the existence of the observed crusts. This video shows several pellets that have partially degraded over time adjacent to microfossils. I have discovered that when hot-oil pipelines are laid onto these pelletised sediments, the rough pipeline coatings cause the pellets to disintegrate. This in turn causes a reduction in friction between the pipeline and the seabed. I am therefore investigating how we can better understand this complicated soil-pipeline interaction. This research will help predict longer-term hot-oil pipeline behaviour, leading to safer and more economical designs." The pellets shown in this image are about 50 micrometers in diameter. This is about the same diameter as a human hair Many thanks to Professor Malcolm Bolton, Mr Andy Hill, Ms Anne Bahnweg, Mr Alan Heaver.
