What Does the Ocean Floor Look Like?
ES2301  New Views of The Sea Floor

Before the technology existed for observing, measuring, mapping, and creating images of the ocean floor, scientists had little idea of how it looked. A variety of technologies now exist that help us visualize the seafloor. From submersibles that allow direct observation to instruments that map the seafloor from satellites, technology is finally enabling us to explore the 70 percent of our planet that is covered by oceans.
