Those curious about deep ocean research may want to check out the current expedition of Okeanos Explorer, the research ship of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). This ongoing two-part expedition is taking place from May 30 to July 12, 2019, and aims "to collect critical baseline information about unknown and poorly understood deepwater areas of the Southeastern United States" off the coasts of Florida, Georgia, and the Carolinas. Readers may like to begin with the background information section (found in the right sidebar) to see an expedition overview and learn about this mission's goals and scientific context. A growing collection of high-resolution photos and maps resides in the Image and Video Gallery, and after the expedition begins its second leg on June 20, daily updates and mission logs will also be added to this site. STEM educators should check out the Expedition Education Module, where they will find several collections of multimedia educational content on the themes of oceanic cold seeps, deep-sea corals, and marine archaeology, as well as links to this expedition's live video feeds and the Okeanos Explorer's general education materials collection.
