This story entered on 22nd Mar, 2004 06:16:35 AM PST

NOAA's Aquarius, the world's only undersea laboratory, is the focus of the most recent issue of Current - the Journal of Marine Education . Current is a publication of the National Marine Educators Association.

In this issue of Current, articles are presented about NOAA's Aquarius, coral reefs, and a partnership program between NOAA and NASA. Additionally, standards-based lesson plans that tie directly to the research being carried out at NOAA's Aquarius are presented. The lesson plans had their beginning during a weekend-long workshop in Key Largo almost two years ago where scientists, educators, and graduate students came together to develop an approach for effectively communicating the science of NOAA's Aquarius to students, educators, and the general public.

The guest editors of this Issue of Current were Dr. Steven Miller, Director of NOAA's National Undersea Research Program Center at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, and Paula Keener-Chavis, the National Education Coordinator for NOAA's Office of Ocean Exploration.

NOAA's Aquarius is owned by NOAA and operated by the NURP Center at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington.
