Dive and Discover in the Gulf of Mexico

Join Dive and Discover’s online expedition as the deep-sea submersibles Alvin and Sentry explore the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico with scientists from Pennsylvania State University, Temple University, Haverford College, and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.   The website will offer daily posts from Alvin’s support ship, R/V Atlantis, that report on research at sea, life aboard ship, and news of what the scientists find each day.  Students can also delve deeper into topics related to life in the ocean and email questions to researchers on board.  The expedition starts December 6, 2010.  The website offers classroom activities, hot topics, and more.  http://www.divediscover.whoi.edu/
