In this episode of Rising Tide we talk with Submersible engineer and marine robotics expert Tony Lawson about the challenges faced by the deep submersion community. He describes the challenges and wonders of building vessels designed to explore the ocean depths, their classing, industry safety record and ongoing innovations. He also speaks about his personal reaction to the “predictable” tragedy of the Titan, lost while diving on the Titanic. This conversation is guaranteed to teach you something about the deep ocean and the engineering that gets us there.
Rising Tide, the Ocean Podcast is co-hosted by Blue Frontier’s David Helvarg and the Inland Ocean Coalition’s Vicki Nichols-Goldstein. This podcast aims to give you information, inspiration and motivation (along with a few laughs) to help understand our ocean world and make it better. The ocean is rising, and so are we!
