Joint projects – MBA/MBARI
Project Manager/Lead Scientist: George Matsumoto
This JPC (joint projects committee) proposal focuses on collaborative projects between the
Monterey Bay Aquarium (MBA) and MBARI. It reflects
the resource needs for 2003 and, where information is available, projects
future needs. MBARI and MBA have signed a formal Memorandum of
Understanding, with Randy Kochevar (MBA) and George Matsumoto (MBARI) serving as the
primary liaison for their respective institutions.
Year 2003 projects include working with MBA on the closure of Mysteries
of the Deep (scheduled for November 2003), the revision of the
multi-media auditorium program Exploring Monterey Canyon, aquarium education programs, joint intern activities, and
some collaborative research projects.
