In The News: Korean warships clash, Pacific Garbage Patch, marine VHF channel 16.
N. Korea, Neighbor Clash On High Seas. The headline for this story from msnbc is very dramatic, but inaccurate. The whole point of the clash was a border dispute; the "high seas" are, by definition, international waters.
Afloat In The Ocean, Expanding Islands Of Trash. A New York Times story about one of the first serious efforts to study the Pacific Garbage Patch.
Guarding One-Six. A fun and informative post on using marine VHF radios, from the Three Sheets Northwest blog in the Seattle PostGlobe.
