Thermography in Marine Mammals VeroHMcC 7/8/2005
I trying to detect the circulatory system in dolphins using IR Image. Does anybody have information on the use of infrared cameras in marine mammals?
Re:Thermography in Marine Mammals IRJay 7/8/2005
There has been some work done on Manatees in Florida for stress and circulation. I will review my records and find some contact info for you.

Here are a couple of articles that might be of itnerest.

Thermoregulation in Steller sea lions: an experimental approach.
The exchange of heat between a homeothermic animal's body and it's environment can be expressed in terms of heat flow, also called heat flux, typically stated in units of energy transferred per surface area (W m^-2).

Veronica - and others -

In terms of the cost of a phone call: if you use Skype you can call over the internet for free to another Skype customer or for very low rates to a non-skype customer using SkypeOut. The SkypeOut rates are based on the destination, not the originating location. For calls to the US it is less than 2.5 cents/minute. Here is a link with more info. (I have not relationship with Skype other than I have tried it.)
