A collaborative project of the University of Delaware College of Marine Studies and Sea Grant College Program and WHYY-TV, this site tracked the recent Extreme 2000 mission, in which scientists from the University of Delaware explored hydrothermal vents in the Sea of Cortes off the west coast of Mexico in the deep-sea sub Alvin. Although the mission ended on January 22, the site offers a number of interesting items, including information on the mission and crew, a dive log, daily journal, and photos and movie clips. In addition, users will find several features on seafloor geology, deepsea creatures, toxic chemistry, and high-tech tools. A list of related links and an internal search engine are also provided. Attractively presented and quick-loading, the site contains enough information to keep adults interested while still appealing to younger users.
