Why We Explore: A Collaboration With NOAA OER and Schmidt Ocean Institute
Deep sea exploration takes a village--and a fleet! Learn how ocean exploration brings together multidisciplinary teams and cutting-edge technology to explore remote regions of our planet's oceans.
"Thanks to game-changing technological advancements - like submersible vehicles, autonomous underwater robots, sensors, and cameras - we can now look into the ocean like never before....This effort can only be achieved through cooperation and collaboration."
For this video, Ocean Exploration Trust collaborated with the NOAA Office of Ocean Exploration and Research and Schmidt Ocean Institute to highlight leading exploration programs aboard OET’s E/V Nautilus, NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer, and SOI’s R/V Falkor.
Join the Nautilus Exploration Program for our 2020 Expedition as we shine new light on little-known regions of the deep sea along the North American West Coast, from British Columbia to Southern California. The Ocean Exploration Trust will embark on its sixth year of scientific exploration in the Eastern Pacific Ocean aboard E/V Nautilus, continuing to work with expedition partners and the wider scientific community to identify priority research areas to conduct remotely operated vehicle (ROV) surveys and seafloor mapping .
