The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), on whose work we rely on during all tropical storm activity, is currently operating an exploration of the ocean surrounding Puerto Rico.
The expedition will explore Puerto Rico’s seamounts, trenches, and troughs. Using both at-sea and shore-based science teams, the expedition will investigate unknown and poorly known areas, including the Puerto Rico Trench, Muertos Trough, Mona Passage, and the Virgin Islands Trough.

Blast From The Past
I remember my teacher wheeling the television into my classroom so we could watch video from Apollo 16. Truth be told, now that I think about it, that experience fundamentally changed my life. It kindled a life long passion for science, to which I am forever grateful.
