Less than five percent of the entire ocean has been explored to date, according to the National Ocean Service. But scientists at FAU's Harbor Branch have been developing tools and technology to discover what lies beneath the deep. On Saturday Jan. 16, the FAU Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute (HBOI) will be unveiling a showcase that will feature the tools scientists and engineers of the institute use to explore the ocean. Named “Sight, Sound and Dynamics in the Sea: The Role of Technology in Ocean Exploration,” it will be Harbor Branch’s first ever rotating exhibit.
