All life on Earth relies on the ocean— yet, the ocean remains 95 percent unexplored, unknown, and unseen by human eyes. Join us, along with NOAA’s Office of Ocean Exploration and Research, as we look at the tools used to explore the deep sea. In Part I of our two-part series you’ll map a hidden landscape using SONAR simulation, investigate remotely operated vehicle technology by building a robotic arm, and learn more about America’s first federally operated ship dedicated solely to ocean exploration.
