Why Black Holes are not Blue










Building up the paper archive, we are coming across lots of cool stuff-
amazing the research that has gone on in the country.  We found this
paper on black holes – a subset of the well-studied blue holes that just
happen to be black.  The paper is pretty easy to follow if you want all
of the detail.  Why black? Here is a quick summary with some answers,
and here is a more personal account of diving the holes.  And check

Craig Layman
My lab’s interdisciplinary pursuits provide for a multi-faceted understanding of environmental change in the coastal realm. We are ecologists, asking questions that span population, community, ecosystem and evolutionary sub-disciplines. We often use a food web based perspective, exploring top-down (e.g., predation) and bottom-up (e.g., nutrient excretion) mechanisms by which animals affect ecosystem processes. All of our efforts are framed within a broader outreach framework, directly integrating science and education, using approaches such as this website.
