Parking Lot Full Today

Marine mammal specialist Michael Moore (left) and MIT/WHOI student Regina Campbell-Malone (now a postdoctoral investigator at WHOI and Brown University) use fine lines to suspend the skeleton of a right whale in a WHOI parking lot. (Just off camera, a pair of coyotes spent the day eyeing the biggest bones they'd ever seen.) The bones, particularly the jaw, were imaged in three dimensions with a laser scanner. Campbell-Malone has worked with Moore to develop a computer model of right whale bone properties and how they respond to massive, blunt trauma, such as ship strikes.
