Join us at sea and onshore! Ocean Exploration Trust seeks out new discoveries in geology, biology, and archaeology while exploring little-known regions of the world’s oceans, and shares expeditions with explorers around the world via live telepresence. The international Nautilus Corps of Exploration consists of engineers, scientists, technologists, educators, students, and mariners--all contributing in various ways to our expeditions at sea and onshore.
For the scientific community, our Scientists Ashore Program allows researchers around the world to contribute to our expeditions remotely and request collected data and samples. We also embed educators and students on E/V Nautilus expeditions, gaining hands-on experience in ocean exploration and serving as STEM role models for the next generation.
