and Discover--Expeditions to the Seafloor:
Expedition 4 March 27-May 5, 2001
Join the R/V Knorr as it embarks on a 40-day journey to the Indian Ocean. Scientists aboard the ship will be investigating hydrothermal vents in the mid-ocean ridge. They will use a variety of instruments, including submersible vehicles. This website has a great glossary, slide shows, videos, and daily updates. One can send email to the scientists aboard the ship. The latitude and longitude of the ship will be posted on the website. A map is provided so that the ship can be tracked. (Great math exercises!!) Look under "Deeper Discovery-Teacher Resources" for information about ordering an "Educator's Companion" set of activities. Adult learners have enjoyed participating in past Dive and Discover expeditions.
