Surfing for science: Researchers are using Smartfin to study ocean
Neurologist Andy Stern says some marine biologists are predicting a possibly grim future for the ocean, but he and his team of engineers developed an inexpensive and portable product to study the waters. It’s an intelligent surfboard, called Smartfin, which analyzes different details of the waves, to hopefully one day provide insight into what climate change is doing now and what it will do next. NBC’s Gadi Schwartz reports for Sunday TODAY.
