Harbor Branch Web Developers Team With ABC News To Bring Ocean Adventure To A Computer Near You

e stories are very easy for us to get at. We're also planning to go outside our own institution to cover work being done by other marine science institutions. The bottom of the ocean is our only limit, and there's a lot of adventure between here and there!"

Upcoming @Sea® expeditions for 1999 will cover research of deep-sea, bioluminescent creatures using the JOHNSON-SEA-LINK manned submersible, and the hunt for potent medicines from the ocean depths. Correspondents will be sending daily dispatches, audio clips, and video segments of these real-life (not staged) adventures as they happen, and also will attempt to convey what life is like aboard leading-edge research vessels, whether in the labs or sitting down to sample the shipboard food. According to Mark Bryant, Science Producer for ABCNEWS.com, these dispatches will allow many thousands of people " a chance to peer over the shoulders of researchers in the field, to vicariously enjoy science as it happens." ABCNEWS.com provides tremendous media reach for @Sea® and a unique collaborative opportunity for Harbor Branch Oceanographic's Media Lab. Visitors to either site will see far-away ports, exotic animals, leading-edge technology, and some of the world's most daring scientists. This very material has inspired films produced by National Geographic, BBC, Nature, IMAX, Disney, and the Discovery Channel, using Harbor Branch ships and subs as filming platforms.

@Sea® is up and running at http://www.at-sea.org, and currently hosts a preview article about shark research. Live coverage of the shark mission with Dr. Gruber begins on March 12. The Harbor Branch Media Lab will be hosting a presentation at 7:00 PM on March 11 on the Harbor Branch campus. Titled, "An Ocean on Every Desktop - Opening the Mysteries of the Ocean with Multimedia Technology", this presentation will demonstrate the many ways that electronic media can be used for marine science education. The evening may even include a
