This paper describes an ongoing project to build a computer application that presents Einstein's theory of relativity in an interactive game environment. With the current interest in the use and study of how computer games can help teach and educate, so-called 'serious games', the resulting game is expected to have value for educators in communicating the(More)
STOCK DEFINITION AND GEOGRAPHIC RANGE Steller sea lions range along the North Pacific Rim from northern Japan to California (Loughlin et al. 1984), with centers of abundance and distribution in the Gulf of Alaska and Aleutian Islands, respectively. The species is not known to migrate, but individuals disperse widely outside of the breeding season (late(More)
Note: January 2004: There are minor differences between the numbers of Steller sea lions reported in Table 3 and the numbers provided to the Steller sea lion recovery team for central California and northern California/Oregon. These numbers will be updated in the draft SARs for 2004. STOCK DEFINITION AND GEOGRAPHIC RANGE Steller sea lions range along the(More)
STOCK DEFINITION AND GEOGRAPHIC RANGE The humpback whale is distributed worldwide in all ocean basins, though it is less common in Arctic waters. In winter, most humpback whales occur in the temperate and tropical waters of the North and South Hemispheres (from 10°-23° latitude). Humpback whales in the North Pacific are seasonal migrants that feed on(More)
STOCK DEFINITION AND GEOGRAPHIC RANGE The sperm whale is one of the most widely distributed of any marine mammal species, perhaps only exceeded by the killer whale (Rice 1989). They feed primarily on medium-sized to large-sized squids but may also feed on large demersal and mesopelagic sharks, skates, and fishes (Gosho et al. 1984). In the North Pacific,(More)

STOCK DEFINITION AND GEOGRAPHIC RANGE Northern fur seals occur from southern California north to the Bering Sea (Fig. 5) and west to the Okhotsk Sea and Honshu Island, Japan. During the breeding season, approximately 74% of the worldwide population is found on the Pribilof Islands in the southern Bering Sea, with the remaining animals spread throughout the(More)
STOCK DEFINITION AND GEOGRAPHIC RANGE Beluga whales are distributed throughout seasonally ice-covered arctic and subarctic waters of the Northern Hemisphere (Gurevich 1980), and are closely associated with open leads and polynyas in ice-covered regions (Hazard 1988). Depending on season and region, beluga whales may occur in both offshore and coastal(More)
