Sea Grant Web Spotlight: "Extreme 2002: Mission to the Abyss" -www.ocean.udel.edu/extreme2002/
Beginning October 21 nearly 42,000 middle and high school students in 525 schools in 49 states and five foreign countries will begin a virtual journey to the depths of the Pacific Ocean through Delaware Sea Grant's "Mission to the Abyss" education program. Students and teachers will follow the action as University of Delaware scientist Craig Cary explores hydrothermal vents in the Pacific Ocean. Cary and his team will study the vents and the creatures that inhabit them, including the Pompeii worm, the "hottest" animals on the planet, as it can withstand temperatures of up to 176 degrees F. Scientists will use the submersible ALVIN and research vessel ATLANTIS to perform their work. As part of the National Science Foundation research, Delaware Sea Grant is helping to sponsor classroom materials that will allow students and teachers to participate in the action. While the research team explores, students can tune in to an interactive website that will be updated daily throughout the 24-day voyage. More than 450 schools from across the U.S. and several other countries will use the provided resource guides, curricula and video about the deep sea to guide them through Cary's expedition. A sel
