Kenneth S. Norris recognized the potential of telemetry and tags to provide vastly improved understanding of the way marine mammals make a living. Many hours of discussion with Ken were spent working through details of new technologies that might allow better views of behavior underwater. He was always searching for improved ways to assess the activities of marine mammals-this concern was evident even in his early writing (e. g., Norris, Evans and Ray 1974). Ken was pleased with the developing tag designs and was insistent that sperm whales be the subject of intense study, so that our ideas will no longer “rest upon shaky ground,” he said. The analyses here of sperm whale surfacing activities are dedicated to Ken.
