NOAA Live! Alaska
Interactive webinar connecting NOAA Fisheries scientists and partners with Alaska students, teachers and local communities.
Exploring the Ocean Seafloor: Underwater Volcanoes and their Habitats
Colleen Hoffman, Cooperative Institute for Climate, Ocean, and Ecosystem Studies and University of Washington School of Oceanography
Come learn about the explosive world of underwater volcanoes! Alien looking organisms, robots and submarines, and eruptions are all part of the fun in studying these systems 10,000-13,000 feet below sea level. Narrated by a marine geochemist, we explore an underwater volcano habitat and how we collect samples from the deep.
The webinar will also be live streamed on Facebook Live on the NOAA Fisheries Alaska Facebook page (@NOAAFisheriesAK).
NOAA Live! Alaska is a weekly series of interactive webinars, aimed at Alaska students in grades 2-8 (but of interest to all ages!). We will feature NOAA scientists, educators and partners to explore NOAA’s work in Alaska. Learn about current research. Connect to what’s going on in your communities. Join us to ask questions to our presenters and learn more about weather, oceanography, marine life, fisheries and more in Alaska!
NOAA Live! Alaska is coordinated by NOAA's Alaska Fisheries Science Center, NOAA's Alaska Regional Collaboration Network, and the National Weather Service. The series is modeled on the NOAA Live! webinars coordinated by Woods Hole Sea Grant and the NOAA Regional Collaboration Network. Contact Lisa.Hiruki-Raring@noaa.gov with any questions.
