Event Details

The ocean is the defining feature of our planet and is the last and largest unexplored place on Earth. It has inspired fear, awe, wonder, and fed man's imagination and curiosity for centuries. However, up until the last century, fundamental questions like how deep is the ocean, what is the ocean floor made of, is there life in the deep sea -- and the list goes on-- had not been answered. For more than 60 years, these questions have driven scientists at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University who have pioneered studies of the world’s oceans from our renowned research vessels. It was only in 2011 that programs like Google Earth unveiled the ability to view and explore what we know of the surface of the ocean floor from the comfort of our own computers. The thrill of ocean exploration continues to inspire the scientists at Lamont-Doherty, who have traveled millions of miles in pursuit of new knowledge about our planet throughout our rich seagoing history.
