noun - Expedition White Shark is the world's very first iPhone and iPad app that allows anyone to track adult white sharks from a special satellite array orbiting the earth. To make this possible, scientists at the Marine Conservation Science Institute fitted Great white sharks with custom built satellite transmitters.

The iPhone and iPad app enables receipt of live tracking data for the tagged Great white sharks, at the same time as the research scientists. Positions for the tagged sharks can only be calculated when a shark is swimming at the surface with its dorsal fin out of the water for several minutes, furthermore, one of the ARGOS satellites must be overhead at the very same instant.
