Ocean Exploration Trust is live streaming the current E/V Nautilus expedition Luʻuaeaahikiikapapakū. Returning to Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument (PMNM) after an expedition in 2018, this team is conducting ROV surveys on a chain of seamounts, and documenting whether these underwater mountains support vibrant coral and sponge communities like others in the region. Watch the live stream through December 6, 2021, and you might catch C-DEBIer Beth Orcutt waving to the camera at 7:30AM Hawaii / 9:30AM Pacific / 12:30PM Eastern!
Researchers and scientists are needed to make the most of our exploration by transforming the data and samples collected into discoveries! You can participate live via telepresence with Exploration Vessel Nautilus as we explore the Eastern Pacific Ocean along the US West Coast and within the Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument. Registration is now open for Ocean Exploration Trust’s Scientist Ashore Program to receive full access to planning calls and detailed information about each of our 2021 expeditions. Researchers from all sectors, undergraduate, community college, and graduate students, and early career scientists are encouraged to register. The general public, including educators and students of all ages, are encouraged to watch our live stream and send in questions to our team on watch. Registration as a Scientist Ashore will allow you to engage with science teams in the planning and at-sea phases of our programs and receive updates from the field during expeditions. To receive details on an introductory webinar in late-February, register by February 18, 2021.
The Ocean Exploration Trust (OET) is now accepting applications for students to participate in the Science & Engineering Internship Program during the 2018 E/V Nautilus Expedition! Check out www.NautilusLive.org to learn more about the work of Ocean Exploration Trust. Founded by Dr. Robert Ballard in 2008, OET is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit committed to bringing ocean exploration to the world via live telepresence and providing experiential opportunities for students, educators, and early career professionals. Opportunities for undergraduates, graduate students, and recent graduates are available in ocean science, seafloor mapping, ROV (remotely operated vehicle) engineering, and video engineering through the Science & Engineering Internship Program. Accepted students will have the chance to sail aboard E/V Nautilus for 2-4 weeks learning from experts in the field receiving a paid stipend or college credit. Application Deadline: January 26, 2018.
Applications are available now for you to explore the Eastern Pacific Ocean with Dr. Robert Ballard’s Corps of Exploration as a Science Communication Fellow! This team of explorers conducts cutting-edge scientific exploration of parts of the global ocean never seen before using remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) and multibeam mapping technology. Fellows will spend 1-3 weeks at sea between June – November 2018 in the Pacific Ocean. The Science Communication Fellowship invites K-20 and informal educators for a professional development experience aboard Exploration Vessel Nautilus as science interpreters among a team of STEM professionals. Participants will gain exposure to and experience in the applications of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in the field of ocean exploration. Fellows will collaborate with a cohort from across North America, explore side-by-side with scientists and engineers, and share the adventure with their students, community, and the world as the expedition is broadcast live on www.NautilusLive.org. Applications for the Science Communication Fellowship are due by January 15, 2018.
