NOAA Ocean Explorer is an educational website for virtual exploration of the ocean realm. It provides public access to current information on a series of NOAA scientific and educational explorations and activities in the marine environment. Users can follow explorations in near real-time, learn about exploration technologies, observe remote marine flora and fauna in the colorful multimedia gallery, read about NOAA’s 200-year history of ocean exploration, and discover additional NOAA resources in a virtual library. The Education section provides direct access to standards-based lesson plans and professional development opportunities for educators.
This site is built with contributions from a broad range of authors, including marine scientists, resource managers, educators, students, historians, artists, musicians, creative writers, policymakers, and others.
