Chapter Summary

NOAA's Undersea Research Program, is dedicated to research under the surface of the sea. As a result of the author's experience with this program and the nature of the knowledge identified through the work, he became increasingly aware of just how much there is to learn about what lies beneath the surface of the waves. This chapter proposes a strategy of interdisciplinary expeditions, new partnerships, and integrated federal programs to characterize the vast array of biological, physical, and chemical environments of the oceans and foster the development of technology. These recommendations led to the establishment of the Office of Ocean Exploration within NOAA in 2001. In 2003, a National Research Council report reiterated the need for a comprehensive national ocean exploration program strongly linked to traditional research, with broad international partnerships and a commitment to educational opportunities.
