The NOAA Office of Ocean Exploration’s "Islands in the Stream 2002: Exploring Underwater Oases" hosted four scientific investigations geared toward learning more about high-relief areas along the continental shelf break and slope from the eastern coast of Florida to North Carolina - an area known as the South Atlantic Bight.
