Please join Café Scientifique-New Mexico for an exciting opportunity to take a live tour of the Seafloor to Seabirds in the Coral Sea expedition. The R/V Falkor will be docked offshore near Queensland Australia in the Coral Sea Marine Park.
Teens will be able to learn about the expedition from science explorers and researchers. The expedition is focused on mapping the Kenn Plateau–an underwater microcontinent, collecting magnetic microdata, and collecting microplastic samples. A seabird observer will also be joining the expedition to investigate seabird species concentrations.
