Axial Seamount Website

RSN Outreach Through Web Development

This website will focus on the scientific aspects of Axial Seamount, including biological, chemical, physical, and geological topics. It will also use hydrothermal vents as an example of the interdisciplinary nature of oceanography and an explanation of the technology used to explore these remote areas. The goal of this site will be to capture the interest of middle school students and a general non-scientific audience. Currently still in the development phase, it will be published by mid-September 2013.  Marisa also plans to use it as an aid to speak to local public schools about ocean sciences.
