Viviana Zamorano

NOAA Teachers-at-Sea Program
In November 2003, Bob Weller’s NOAA funded project Stratus “Long-term Evolution and Coupling of the Boundary Layers in the Stratus Deck Regions of the Eastern Pacific” included a 16 day cruise to recover and deploy a surface mooring. Scripps Institution of Oceanography ship the R/V Roger Revelle sailed from Manta, Ecuador and docked in Arica, Chile.

Stratus hosted two teachers as part of NOAA’s Teachers-at-Sea program. Debra Brice is a middle school science teacher in San Diego at San Marcos Middle School, and Viviana Zamorano is also a middle school science teacher at Escuela America in Arica, Chile. During the cruise, the teachers assisted with science operations including mooring deployments and recoveries. The teachers also hosted web broadcasts, wrote daily logs, took photos, and interviewed science members and crew. This information was used to communicate with their own classrooms as well as those of other land-based teachers. They were assisted with the video and web-based communications by John Kermond, also of NOAA.
