Oceans Research session

Advancements in ocean science have provided the U.S. with a wealth of benefits from protecting against natural hazards to advancing our knowledge of ocean processes. By expanding our enterprise and understanding on ocean-related societal and scientific issues such as: marine operations, ecosystem and human health, education, data and technological advances, and ocean infrastructure – we can continue charting our course towards ensuring sustainable oceans for future generations.
