The best e-mail that landed in my in-box this week was the glowing, grinning face of Lance Morgan, emerging from the water in a single-man deep sea diving submarine. It was a winning and happy photo sent to me by Lance’s sweetheart, Angela Morgan.
Lance, as we call him in his hometown of Glen Ellen, is also known as Dr. Morgan, an important member of the scientific, deep sea diving expedition, Finding Coral. They will be diving to depths of 500 meters off the British Columbia coast gathering data on corals, associated species and damage from human impacts. As part of his post doctoral research, Lance studied corals and wrote the influential “Shifting Gears” study which focused on collateral damage from commercial fishing.
