Whale Tracking by Satellite

A right whale off the coast of Newfoundland is tagged with a radio transmitter, and a biologist from the Marine Science Center in Newport is able to track the whale’s movements on his computer screen. Satellite technology is opening up whole new worlds of information about whales, their travels and the depth of their dives.
