NOAA Ocean Mapping and Exploration Cartographic Exhibition

NOAA Cartographic Exhibition featuring over hundred spectacular, global, regional and local ocean, coastal area, and exploration maps inculding navigaional charts, bathymetric maps, shipwreck maps, marine species habitat maps and satellite imagery! Learn more about this exhibition here!

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution Scale Models

Finely detailed Seafloor Mapping and Exploration Vehicle Scale Models of the ALVIN deepwater research submersible, the Autonomous Benthic Explorer (ABE) and the Remote Environmental Monitoring Units (REMUS) vehicle. The true vehicles that these models represent are used for coastal and deepsea exploration, surveying, and seafloor mapping.  

Operational Ocean Observation Buoys.

These impressive fifteen foot tall buoys used regularly by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and the University of New Hampshire observe the physical characteristics of the ocean and atmosphere around the NH Great Bay area including air temperature, wind speed, wind direction, water termperature, salinity, chlorophyll content, dissolved oxygen content, and turbidity.    

National Geographic Atlas of the Ocean Book Sale

A National Geographic atlas that explores the undersea realms or the world, taking the reader to places such as Earth's deepest abyss and the world's longest mountain chain all the while unlocking many of the innumerable mysteries of the sea.   On sale in the GIS Day Store.
