Extreme Corals 2010 Expedition sets sail

Today, the NOAA ship Ron Brown departs Pensacola, FL, on the Extreme Corals 2010 Expedition.  Chief scientists, Steve Ross, UNCW, and Sandra Brooke, Marine Conservation and Biology Institute, lead the effort to explore and characterize deep coral ecosystems from the West Florida Shelf to the northern Florida east coast using WHOI’s Jason ROV. We have set up a Web portal for the expedition at http://cioert.org/xcorals.  The NC Museum of Natural Science is partnering on this web offering, providing access to daily blogs from sea, image gallery, education materials and more at http://deepcoral.wordpress.com.
