NOAA Ocean Exploration Webinar for Educators - Northeast Canyons Expedition 2013
Date: 07/08/13 2:00 PM EST - 07/08/13 3:00PM EST
Location: Online Webinar

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Office of Exploration and Research invites formal and informal educators to participate in a webinar to introduce educational resources developed for an ocean exploration mission to the Northeast U.S. Canyons aboard the NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer. From July 8 - August 17, 2013, the Okeanos Explorer will explore the diversity of benthic habitats and features, including deep-sea corals, gas seeps and landslide features in and along the northeast deep water canyons and seamounts off the U.S. East Coast. Using telepresence technology, scientists on board the ship will collaborate with scientists participating remotely from shore. The expedition will use the ships core capabilities: a new remotely operated vehicle (ROV) that can reach a depth of 6,000 meters, multibeam sonar for bathymetric mapping, and a Conductivity, Temperature and Depth (CTD) profiler to characterize unknown and poorly-known areas of our ocean. Educators, students and the general public can follow along and watch this expedition unfold in real-time via the Internet.
