nautilus_noah-brookoff-smallThe Nautilus research ship is arriving at the port of Haifa this week to embark on a second expedition of joint research activity with the University of Haifa’s Leon H. Charney School of Marine Sciences.

The Nautilus project is an international endeavor to navigate the sea floor with the state-of-the-art technologies that are installed on the Nautilus, including diving robots and elaborate control rooms. The joint expedition affords the perfect opportunity for educational and public activities that raise awareness of the deep sea environment and its secrets.

The research off the coast of Israel is a joint activity being conducted by a team of researchers from the University of Rhode Island, the Leon H. Charney School of Marine Sciences at the University of Haifa, headed by Prof. Zvi Ben Avraham, and additional partners. The ship is already broadcasting live at http://www.nautiluslive.org/ and its underwater research will be streamed to the control room at the University of Haifa 24 hours a day. The public will be able to visit the control room at the University and watch the deep-sea secrets revealed on large screens.

Seeing the ship’s crew off at the port of Haifa with a festive reception, will be University President Prof. Aaron Ben-Ze’ev and senior administration, British Ambassador Matthew Gould, a delegation of academics, professionals and executives from Rhode Island, and more.
