Apr 7, 2015 – What’s it like to explore the depths of Monterey Canyon using an underwater robot? Visitors to the Monterey Bay Aquarium can find out in a new exhibit and auditorium program that highlight MBARI’s deep-sea research.
Mar 17, 2015 – Exploring the deep sea, and especially submarine canyons, is a risky business. The floors of many submarine canyons are scoured by fast-moving underwater avalanches known as “turbidity currents.”
Research programs at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) encompass the entire ocean, from the surface waters to the deep seafloor, and from the coastal zone to the open sea. The need to understand the ocean in all its complexity and variability drives MBARI's research and development efforts.
