Beyond the Blue: Papahānaumokuākea Mapping 1

June 21-July 11, 2024

From June 21 to July 11, 2024, NOAA Ocean Exploration and partners will conduct an exploratory ocean mapping expedition on NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer focused on waters generally deeper than 200 meters (656 feet) in and around Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument. Collected data will contribute to Beyond the Blue: Illuminating the Pacific, a multiyear, collaborative science and research campaign aimed at bringing together partners to raise collective knowledge, understanding, and appreciation of waters in the Pacific Islands region through coastal and ocean mapping, exploration, and characterization. There will not be any remotely operated vehicle dives during this expedition.
