Wetlands and Aquatic Research Center - Florida
Cruise Log: 8/12/2009
This team of researchers puts lots of effort in making certain that everyone can "see" our work, Not only do they have daily logs going to the Museum site, they are also being posted on DISCOVRE (the USGS site) and on facebook (the Revealing the Deep group). The research team has allotted two berths for education and outreach, a significant percentage of the 16 slots allotted for the science team. They are being filled by Liz Baird (North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences) and Art Howard (ARTWORK). They are working on gathering images and stories for the Museums' new wing, the NRC. In the NRC there will be an exhibit that is modeled after the Johnson-Sea-Link, where visitors can enter the simulated submersible and experience a recreated submersible dive. Additionally, Art is using a fish eye lens to shoot video which we hope will be used in the new immersion theater.
We are looking forward to seeing what comes out, and are dependent upon folks back at home to record the NBC Nightly News on Thursday, August 13th (we don't get any television reception out here). Hopefully we will get electronic versions of what comes out in print. Our work really happens, and we are pleased that so many people will have a chance to "see" what we are doing.
