Exploring the Deep Waters Off Hawai’i

From July 10 to September 30, 2015, NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer will explore largely unknown deep-sea ecosystems in the Hawaiian Archipelago and offshore Johnston Atoll as part of the Hohonu Moana: Exploring the Deep Waters off Hawai’i expedition.

NOAA, Ocean Explorer is an educational Internet offering for all who wish to learn about, discover, and virtually explore the ocean realm. It provides public access to current information on a series of National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) scientific and educational explorations and activities in the marine environment. The site provides a platform to follow explorations in near real-time, learn about exploration technologies, observe remote marine flora and fauna in the colorful multimedia gallery, read about NOAA’s 200-year history of ocean exploration, and discover additional NOAA resources in a virtual library.

    This clip gets the 2015 NUDCA prize for the least arresting opening of a video. Five minutes of the back view of a fat man baling water, followed by guys in hard hats looking at equipment. With all the money they must be spending on this project, did it occur to no one to buy the expertise of a professional video-maker? Just cut to the chase guys; if you have discovered something interesting, let’s see it. Maybe about ten seconds of the ship, and equipment being lowered into the sea, then get on with it.
