Ocean Today

OCEAN TODAY serves as a portal to the most useful and interesting websites and organizations on ocean science and culture, to thousands of ocean-based curricula and educational resources, to our Ocean Directory of over 18,000 ocean organizations worldwide.

Our knowledge of the ocean today transcends the limits of a distant horizon and mysterious deep. Through exploration and scientific research we have begun to learn more about its physical elements, its cultural contributions, and its interaction with other natural systems--climate and fresh water, for example--that pertain directly to our personal, financial, and social welfare.

World Ocean Observatory adovcates for the ocean through independent, responsible, apolitical science, and is dedicated to advancing public understanding of ocean issues through institutional collaboration and partnerships,  pro-active programs, and connection with individual subscribers around the world.
