Smithsonian Ocean Portal
The Smithsonian Ocean Portal is a Web site bursting with dynamic, multimedia content designed to engage young adults, ocean enthusiasts and middle school teachers and their students in ocean science, education, and conservation. NOAA has contributed significantly to the Portal and continues to be a major contributor to the site. The launch of the Ocean Portal is the last of the three components that comprise the NOAA Smithsonian Ocean Initiative Partnership -- the other two being the Sant Ocean Hall and a more cross-cutting marine science program at NMNH. You are invited to explore the Ocean Portal.
