North Carolina -based scientists were on hand at the North Carolina Maritime Museum's "Beneath the Waves" Film Festival this past spring to relate six short science films to local research. The group included scientists from NCCOS, the National Marine Fisheries Service, and the National Estuarine Research Reserve System, all co-located at NOAA's Beaufort Laboratory.
The Beaufort Laboratoryalso staffed a booth in the museum highlighting NOAA research. Films from the festival can be viewed online: Windy People, Dynamic Landscapes (5:49); Gloop (3:48); Saving North Carolina's Reefs (9:50); Postcard from the Oregon Coast (5:33); Baja (4:44); The Immigrant (3:00).
