Barrel Jellyfish and Supercooled Water
A podcast from the Planet Earth Online collection and the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC).
Scientists know surprisingly little about jellyfish.Which is why British and Irish researchers are in the middle of a project to tag them to find out things like where they go during the winter, how long they live and why they congregate around our coasts during the summer months. Sue Nelson goes to Swansea to find out more about this research.
Later, Richard Hollingham goes to Leeds to talk to a researcher about supercooled water and discovers why it would cause problems for your aeroplane's fuel system.
