    More than 750 sharks, tarpon, tuna and billfish, fitted with satellite-linked tags, are providing scientists with data on temperature and salinity at various depths in the Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean.

    It's information they hope could someday be used to improve hurricane forecasts, since a storm's strength largely depends on how much warm water it will encounter.
