Take a virtual field trip into the depths of Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary with research coordinator Stephanie Gandulla.
In 2019, NOAA’s Office of National Marine Sanctuaries partnered with Ocean Exploration Trust and the Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory to expand our understanding of sanctuaries through deep-water exploration and research. Using an autonomous surface vehicle and the research vessel Storm, Ocean Exploration Trust and Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary explorers mapped unexplored areas of the sanctuary with the goal of discovering new shipwrecks. Join us to learn about the highlights as the project’s lead scientist, Stephanie Gandulla, recounts the expedition.
This live event, tailored for students and run through Exploring by the Seat of Your Pants, will connect viewers with national marine sanctuary experts in research, education, and exploration in real time. Through live events like this, you will be able to learn about national marine sanctuaries and ask questions to leading experts in their field. Check out more upcoming live events here.
