NOAA's Undersea Research Program

Websites - Institutional website
Undersea research is oceanography done by scientists who enter the oceans using scuba, robots and submarines. NOAA's Undersea Research Program (NURP) researchers explore, sample and live beneath the sea. They study a range of environmental problems and science, from beach erosion to deep sea volcanoes. NURP is part of the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) line office, Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (OAR), which is also known as NOAA Research.
