This is the book I did the research for. I went to M.I.T., scoured Dudley's laboratory notebooks, filed some Freedom of Information Act Requests, and interviewed dozens of former colleagues. It was very enjoyable, and, fascinating, three years full-time research.

Because I normally only write technical reports, Douglas and I teamed up with Iain Dey to write this 100% factual scientific thriller / mystery history in a fascinating way that does not require any knowledge of physics or electronics. The book is to be released in U.S.A. October 16, but you can order now.

Be sure to carry your book and a pen around with you so that when you run into me I can autograph it for you. We will be scheduling signing events so that you can get autographs from Iain and Douglas as well.

What is the water temperature today at Blue Heron Bridge?

The temperature record shown on this graph below will show what the water temperature will be today at "the bridge".  This graph should be plenty accurate for you to choose how much / which wetsuit you want to dive.

I also show the high tide schedule at Blue Heron Bridge.

The temperature is actually recorded in the Atlantic Ocean very close to the Palm Beach Inlet.  Notice that the temperature has a 12 hour cycle.  That is because at low tide, water is leaving the intracoastal and going out to the ocean.  In the winter, it will lower the measured temperature.  In the spring, it may raise it.   Then at high tide, ocean water is running into the intracoastal waterway. 

Average water temperatures throughout the year.
