Returning champions Marshfield High School from Marshfield, Wisconsin won the 15th Annual National Ocean Sciences Bowl (NOSB®) Final, held April 19 – 22, 2012 at the Sheraton City Center Hotel in Baltimore, Maryland.
Scientists have just concluded a short expedition aboard the JOIDES Resolution to learn more about Atlantis Massif, an undersea mountain that formed in a very different way as compared to the majority of the seafloor.
Scientists have just returned from an expedition onboard the research vessel JOIDES Resolution, during which they recovered five kilometers of core samples from an area never before drilled.
Today, the Obama Administration released a National Ocean Policy action plan to address the most pressing challenges facing ocean, coastal, and Great Lakes resources.
An international team of scientists sailing onboard the research vessel JOIDES Resolution recently returned from installing observatories beneath the seafloor in “North Pond” – a remote area in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.
Up to $22.5 million will be awarded to researchers studying the effects of the Deepwater Horizon incident on the Gulf of Mexico, public health
With our oceans and coastal ecosystems, and the economies and jobs they support, facing constant and increasingly grave threats from a variety of sources, a bipartisan group of U.S. Senators will meet next week to form a new Senate Oceans Caucus.
When it comes to the world’s oceans, the South Pacific gyre is about as remote – and lifeless – as it gets. Expeditions to visit comparable sites around the globe – in the Atlantic and Indian oceans, for example – have turned up rich microbial ecosystems at or below the seafloor.

Funding Supports Short-Term Continuing and Emergent Observations and Sampling of the Effects of the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill on the Gulf of Mexico
Scientists and drillers recovered a remarkable suite of heat-tempered basalts that provide a detailed picture of the rarely seen boundary between magma and seawater.
Global climate change, earthquakes, and tsunami generation are some of the most pressing geoscientific challenges of the 21st century. Scientific ocean drilling is a key tool to investigate these phenomena and fundamental questions in Earth and life sciences.
