Summary:The NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer is currently investigating the diversity within the deepwater habitats of the Northern Mariana Islands in the Pacific Ocean. On this expedition, scientists are closely examining hydrothermal vent sites, mud volcanoes, subduction zones, seamounts, and the variety of organisms found in these areas. Through an Expedition Education Module -- complete with standards-based lessons relating to the Marianas and theme pages on Deep-Sea Corals, Seamounts, and Vents and Volcanoes -- your middle and high school students can share in expedition discoveries alongside the scientists in real time. Lesson titles include Exploring Live! (grades 5-12), Viscous Volcanoes (grades 6-8), and Sea Serpentines (grades 9-12). Combining these lessons with the live videos and other images from the expedition gives students rarely seen view of the deep ocean and its inhabitants.
