NOAA’s Office of Ocean Exploration and Research invites formal and informal educators to participate in a webinar to introduce educational resources developed for an ocean exploration mission to deepwater canyons off the mid-Atlantic coast aboard the NOAA Ship Ron Brown. From April 30-May 19, scientists will be using the Jason II remotely operated vehicle to explore the rugged canyon walls of Norfolk and Baltimore canyons as they seek to understand more about the connectivity of deep-sea canyon organisms, their associated microbiology and food webs, and the physical, chemical and geological conditions associated with each canyon ecosystem. Shipwrecks found in these areas will also be explored.
This 45-minute webinar will provide an introduction to the science behind the expedition, the associated Education Expedition Module, lesson plans, and classroom resources to enable you and your students to participate in the expedition online.
