Ocean Exploration Panel
August 2000 - April 2004

Ocean Exploration Panel Web site home page

The Ocean Exploration Panel Web site (pdf, 36 mb) provided the backbone of information needed by the Ocean Exploration Panel to recommend to the President a national strategy for a new era of ocean exploration. In June 2000, President Clinton directed the U.S. Department of Commerce to convene this panel of leading ocean explorers, scientists and educators. The Panel's final report entitled "Discovering Earth's Final Frontier: A U.S. Strategy for Ocean Exploration" is an historic accomplishment because it is the only national strategy proposed for exploration of the global oceans by any country in the world. The executive summary of the final report is included on this retired version of the Ocean Exploration Panel Web site.
