Come watch a live stream from research crew off Oregon coast at MaST Saturday
This Saturday, June 18, starting at 12:30 p.m. at the MaST Center, there will be a real-time streaming event from the EV Nautilus and her two ROV submersibles which are currently about 150 miles off the coast of Oregon.
During the 20-minute program, you’ll be able to talk to a couple of the crew, including possibly one of the pilots of the Remote Operated Vehicles and a deep water coral scientist. You’ll also see some of the work they are doing. The center’s own Lindsay Holladay, from the MaST’s Educational Programs, will help run the program as she is currently one of the expedition’s Science Communication Fellow’s onboard the ship.
Over the past several weeks, the EV Nautilus is exploring off the coast of the Pacific Northwest and is focusing on methane seeps and other deep water ecosystems using their ROV’s to take samples and measuring various features. This is real science in action as they explore the deep ocean. Here’s a cool video of a methane seep they found last week (sadly it includes some human litter):
The program is suitable for all ages.
