Archive: Science Update: Exploring Seamounts of the Atlantic and Pacific, June 23, 2022

Our ocean is filled with numerous seamounts, guyots, and other volcanic features that profoundly influence tectonics, ecosystems, and ocean currents. NOAA Ocean Exploration seeks to characterize these features and their influences on our planet’s ocean, and understand their impact on human lives and the natural world. Join us as we explore seamounts of the Atlantic and Pacific Ocean basins, share what we’ve discovered and provide education resources to guide student understanding of these amazing hotspots of biologic and geologic diversity.

All individuals receive a certificate of participation and 100 NSTA activity points for attending the live seminar and completing the end-of-program survey. A certificate of participation is not awarded for watching the recorded version of the program.

We invite you to register for upcoming web seminars at NSTA.

  • "I saved a few cool things that I will be able to use right away in my marine bio elective class."
  • "It was very informative and I was excited to learn about actual research being done aligned with the curriculum I teach."
