Global Foundation for Ocean Exploration

Design. Build. Explore.

Engineers, videographers, data specialists, and educators. We are the Global Foundation for Ocean Exploration. Our team designs, builds, and operates robotic platforms that explore the most extreme underwater environments on the planet—from the deep ocean to the largest lakes.

Today we are celebrating #oceanexplorationday! We have discovered that the deep sea is full of life that we are just beginning to understand. By exploring the ocean, we learn more about our planet, our human maritime history, and our capabilities in engineering.

In 2016, @oceanexplorer ROV #Okeanos explored the #midwater biome. An analyses of midwater biodiversity from that dive will be presented at #AGU22. See Isabel Moyer’s talk @ Tues 3 pm CST to learn more: https://fal.cn/3un7H

Today we are celebrating #oceanexplorationday! Many people think there is little life in the deep sea. However, through our explorations, we have discovered that the deep sea is full of beautiful, colorful life that we are just beginning to understand. By exploring the ocean, we learn more about our planet, our human maritime history, and our capabilities in engineering.
