The Exploration Vessel (E/V) Nautilus is conducting unprecedented research off the Washington coast. Get an inside look at the work Nautilus is doing at unique programs taking place at the Forks Library at 1 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 31 and at 1 p.m. Friday, Sept. 1, at the Clallam Bay Library.

NOAA’s Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary will be conducting seafloor research utilizing remotely operated vehicle (ROV) and autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) deployment along the Olympic Coast aboard Exploration Vessel (E/V) Nautilus.

With live streaming support from the Ocean Exploration Trust, this ship to shore event will provide an opportunity to ask questions and learn more about the research being conducted in our local marine sanctuary.

Scientists, engineers and educators on board Nautilus will be available to communicate virtually, in real-time with anyone curious about the ocean, how to pilot a remotely operated submarine, the impact the ocean deeps have on land and much more.

Additionally, a representative from NOAA will use a small pool on-site to provide an in-person demonstration of ROVs used aboard the ship.
