NOAA Office of Ocean Exploration and Research and NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer: Onward and Downward, Accomplishments and Highlights from the 2019 Field Season
Over the past ten years NOAA’s Office of Ocean Exploration and Research (OER) - utilizing “America’s Ship for Ocean Exploration” the Okeanos Explorer - has led over 100 exploratory ocean mapping missions covering a cumulative area of 1.9 million sq. km of seafloor. During the 2019 field season the ship mapped over 175,000 sq. km. of seafloor (an area larger than the state of Florida) while revealing stunning new insights on deep sea biology, geology, and archaeology in the North Atlantic and the Caribbean. Key Okeanos highlights from the year, collaborations between NOAA OER and the CCOM community, and OER’s mechanisms to further ocean mapping will be presented. The Okeanos Explorer continues to contribute to several national and international marine research campaigns, including the Southeast Deep Coral Initiative, the DEEP Sea Exploration to Advance Research on Coral/Canyon/Cold seep Habitats (DEEP SEARCH) program, the Galway Statement on Atlantic Ocean Cooperation, the Seabed 2030 Project, and the U.S. Extended Continental Shelf Program.
