Join us for a live chat with educators and scientists aboard the Exploration Vessel
Nautilus, which is studying an active volcano beneath the Caribbean Sea. Learn about
the excitement of deep-sea exploration, and find out whether the researchers have had
to dodge any underwater volcanic eruptions. Join us for a live chat with artist Lily Simonson aboard the Exploration Vessel Nautilus,
which is studying an active volcano beneath the Caribbean Sea. A painter and educator
from Los Angeles, Simonson is fascinated by the otherworldly animals of the deep
sea, especially those that live around the superheated waters gushing from cracks on
undersea volcanoes. She’ll tell us what it's like for an artist to collaborate with scientists
at sea and what strange invertebrates she hopes to document. This buoy will be anchored near the Exploratorium for six months, monitoring the acid levels of the bay and transmitting data to NOAA via satellite. This research will give NOAA scientists a better understanding of how the rising acid levels in the ocean are affecting very diverse things such as fish behavior, larvae development, and even plankton. You've probably heard about the Texas-sized island of plastic trash swirling in the center of the Pacific Ocean. But did you know we have our own pockets of floating trash right here in San Francisco Bay? Join us on a trash safari with Sealife Convervation—a research and education group studying the volume, distribution, and sources of trash in the San Francisco and Monterey Bays.
Twenty-seven miles beyond the Golden Gate, the craggy Farallon Islands have been home to fur-seal hunters from Russia, a gold-rush-era egg business, and even a nuclear waste dump. Today they’re home to 250,000 sea birds, not to mention seals, sea lions, whales, and sharks. What makes these stark-looking islands so attractive to wildlife?
Learn about exploring the deep sea with ROVs. The Okeanos' ROV Operations Coordinator Dave Lovalvo shares the expedition's latest discoveries, including video of what is believed to be several completely new species.
Look over the shoulders of ocean explorers as they map and send their ROV into the little-known and unknown regions of the deep sea. "Voyages of Discovery" connects the Exploratorium with NOAA's newest ship, the Okeanos Explorer, currently in the Pacific Ocean near Indonesia, as it carries out its first exploration voyage.
Join the Exploratorium as we connect live for the first time with NOAA's newest ship, the Okeanos Explorer. The Okeanos is on its maiden voyage, traveling from Hawaii to Indonesia. We will talk with scientists on the ship and discover what kind of research they are conducting. Alaska's coastal range is covered in literally thousands of thaw lakes. Ken Hinkel, Yongwei Sheng and John Lenters are embarking on a project to reveal the subtle energy dynamics that take place within these lake systems. Dr. Jewel Bennett, an endangered species biologist with the US Fish and Wildlife Service's Fairbanks field office, is in Barrow leading a survey team tracking the endangered Steller's and Spectacled Eiders' populations. Inupiaq elders, local experts and scientific researchers partner on the North Slope to study and understand the changing environment. Wendy Eisner and Chris Cuomo join us to talk about their project: Indigenous Knowledge and Landscape in Northern Alaska.
