NOAA webcasts corals research to nation's classrooms live from undersea lab
Date:10/12/2010

owned by NOAA and operated by the University of North Carolina Wilmington. The facility enables divers to "saturate," meaning they stay undersea and have extended bottom time for diving and research by going through 17 hours of decompression at the end of a mission instead of going to the surface each day.

"Scientists and educators will live and work in Aquarius studying the health of the nearby Conch Reef research area and how changes in the abundance and diversity of animals and plants affect it," said Steve Gittings, national science coordinator for NOAA's Office of National Marine Sanctuaries and one of the lead scientists for the mission. "The findings will help us all better manage human activities so we can protect these struggling marine ecosystems for future generations."
