Global Foundation for Ocean Exploration

Design. Build. Explore.

Engineers, videographers, data specialists, and educators. We are the Global Foundation for Ocean Exploration. Our team designs, builds, and operates robotic platforms that explore the most extreme underwater environments on the planet—from the deep ocean to the largest lakes. We share our discoveries with the public through our education and outreach activities.

GFOE pilots install the tube core rosette to take five sediment cores during the final dive of the cruise. Launching at 4pm west coast time. #expresscruise https://t.co/38mThqvB9R

Another safe recovery late last night and now we only have two more dives! We should launch today at 4pm west coast time. Link to live video in profile. #expresscruise #oceanexploration #channelislands https://t.co/YYcSPnSm33

That’s very neat to hear! Now only if I had the education and experience required for any position to be considered remotely useful.......hmmmm....

Can you spot Yogi and Guru on the aft deck of the RV Reuben Lasker? We had a successful dive to 1300m last night and plan to explore the seafloor again tonight. #expresscruise ... See MoreSee Less

It's actually the name of Yogi's partner vehicle, which you can see right under the A-frame.

Is Guru the name of the VSAT? If so, I did not know that. Have fun!

Our team excels at adapting vessels for ROV and telepresence capabilities. Behold the portable control room on the NOAA Fisheries Vessel Reuben Lasker, and join us for late night dives this week off the West Coast during the #expresscruise.
