SSE is a five year project of deep-water exploration and public education in NOAA's National Marine Sanctuaries. The sanctuaries conserve, protect, and enhance the biodiversity, ecological integrity, and cultural legacy of the nation's marine environment. Dr. Sylvia Earle, National Geographic Society Explorer-in-Residence, and former National Marine Sanctuary Program Director, Fancesca Cava, will lead the expeditions to the 12 marine sanctuaries, using the newly designed DeepWorker, a one- person submersible capable of exploring to depths of 2,000 feet.
