On NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer, there is no shortage of #girlswithtoys, working to explore the deep sea, create high-resolution maps of the seafloor, and collect oceanographic data.
As part of the current expedition, NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer crossed through the Panama Canal and the officers, crew, and science party aboard the ship received the 'Order of the Ditch.'
From May 8 to June 12, NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer will journey from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean, mapping and exploring along the way.
Mapping underwater landslide features and getting eyes on the seafloor, like scientists did during Océano Profundo 2015, can ultimately help us prepare for and to increase the potential to predict marine hazard events.
Who are the gadiform fishes and why should we study them?
During Océano Profundo, we saw a number of gelatinous organisms — check out this collection of some of the most exciting ones.
