1999 Projects: Education and outreach

An important part of MBARI’s mission is to promote ocean science education. In 1999, as in the past, we will accomplish this by pursuing joint projects with the Monterey Bay Aquarium and maintaining our highly successful microwave link, which provides aquarium visitors with the "Deep in Monterey Canyon" program. MBARI will also continue to support vigorous intern and postdoctoral programs. In addition, we will initiate development of a Deep-Sea Guide.
