Follow Research Cruise with Educators and Artists Aboard

We invite everyone to follow along on the next adventure of the JOIDES Resolution – Expedition 327: Juan de Fuca Hydrogeology! Expedition 327 will install several sub-seafloor observatories to monitor fluid circulation and microbial activity in the ocean’s crust – using cutting edge technology to help scientists explore many unanswered questions about activity and life beneath the seafloor. Expedition 327 will also carry a unique international team of educators and artists – who are all excited to communicate with you and answer your questions in multiple ways and multiple languages! Learn more about them here: http://joidesresolution.org/node/1154.  The expedition begins July 5th (next week!) and runs through September 5, 2010. You can become a part of it at www.joidesresolution.org, where you can read blogs, see the ship’s location, send in questions, find out who’s on board, and much more! You can also Adopt a Microbe on this expedition and do weekly activities that scientists will be responding to, win prizes, and learn all about these critters that live in the deep dark depths!
