How do you spot the ocean science team at the airport?  What we lack for in business attire we substitute with diligence.  Five people, five laptops, and only Carl can be distracted from earnest concentration just long enough to look up and worry: Where’s Chris, and why isn’t he at his laptop too?  From left to right: Tim, Taylor, Dan, Carl and Justin (you can’t see Justin, but you can see his laptop!).  Pop quiz: how come scientists face one way at the airport, while Sentry engineers face the other?  Direction of travel?  Fear of temptation at the Starbucks counter?
