About the NOAA Office of Ocean Exploration and Research

The NOAA Office of Ocean Exploration and Research is the only federal program dedicated to exploring our deep ocean, closing the prominent gap in our basic understanding of U.S. deep waters and seafloor and delivering the ocean information needed to strengthen the economy, health, and security of our nation.

    I’m so excited that the depths of our oceans are being explored, finally. 70% of our planet is made up of water. I think we are too. We come from water in our Mom’s womb. I love to sit by the ocean, listen to the waves crashing on the shore, it is so soothing. I will be following the progress.

    Thank you for reigniting the memories As an electrical engineer over 50 years ago I rode the
    T AGOR 1 (Josiah W Gibbs) and did some of this early work that you are continuing. It gives me
    great pride in being able to come along on your cruise and watch the unbelievable progress that
    you are making.

    Would be cool if you guys set up a live chat aswell so we can ask one of your experts questions.

    Can you all provide the initial time of future dives, how often they will occur, how long they will each be, and if they are only daytime events? Even broad approximations would be nice.

    • Between now and April 30, the we will be diving everyday (weather permitting), with the exception of April 25, when we’ll be moving to a different location. In general, the ROV will be deployed at 0830 CDT and recovered between 1630-1930 CDT. Hope that helps!

    What is the purpose of the laser used by the ROV? Temperature? Measurements? Age?

    Just saw the new octopus discovery in the deep, wonderful. So much is there in the ocean depths that we still don’t know about.
