The Underwater United States

June 29, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Exploring life and ecosystems in the U. S. exclusive economic zone

Join us for a deep dive into a seldom-seen part of U.S. territory that is 1.5 times the size of the country’s continental landmass. WHOI biologist Tim Shank will share images, videos, and insights from seafloor canyons off the U.S. East Coast that contain dramatic topography, diverse ecosystems, and abundant life, much of which is hidden from view beneath the ocean surface.


Research partly funded by MARCO and the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation
