TheVast is committed to sharing the top marine science news regarding new developments in wave energy, ship systems, climate data acquisition, and oceanography, and breakthrough marine science innovations. Additionally, TheVast publishes articles about marine biology news such as new species, marine studies on morphology, habitat, observations, and biological mechanisms. TheVast will share articles about interesting developments in culture that pertain to the ocean, like cinema and funny videos or stories. Because TheVast is committed to spreading more information regarding the world of marine sciences to increase interest in ocean exploration, TheVast also shares tutorials, explanation articles and videos, reference material, how-to's, lists of important studies and ideas for employment, and lists of top interesting marine science facts. Please enjoy TheVast's news section, and for more specific content - scroll below for Politics, Marine Biology, Marine Innovations, Student Resources, and more!

Political by Earth's governments can affect massive change with ramifications that ripple across the globe. But, politics is influenced heavily by the people of each nation - which means YOU can affect change! TheVast is committed to describing new changes in marine science politics, conservation politics, climate change politics, and more. TheVast also finds ways for anyone to participate in this global forum, and identifies unique volunteer opportunities for gracious hearts. The politics section  has analysis, news, suggestions, volunteerism, and more!



Whether it's in pursuit of better solutions, observations of the natural world, or ingenuity of development, marine innovations are occurring everyday! Our technology is constantly being honed and revolutionized; new patterns are being discovered, and characteristics we thought were simple, like the way a stingray glides through water, are helping us to design better airplanes and other marvels of engineering! TheVast is always on the lookout for amazing new marine technology, marine engineering, and maritime developments to share with our readers. Information IS king! We want to build a more informed consumer base and help people realize just how important ocean exploration and marine development is.



As our technology and understanding of the world improves, it's natural to discover new things! And nature is FULL of things we just don't yet understand! Considering that 95% of the ocean is unexplored, there is a massive amount to be learned from it's inhabitants. TheVast encourages ocean exploration endeavors that almost always lead to the discovery of something new, so TheVast plans on documenting these discovers along with the researchers and their valiant efforts. News regarding marine biology, recently discovered species, marine species conservation, marine environmental changes, studies on marine species characteristics and  diveristy, and a LOT more will be covered in our Marine Biology section! Be sure to check here often because the marine sciences are moving fast!

Most commonly when you think of a student you think of someone in school or going to classes - but really, we are all students, doing our best to learn about things that interest us. Though this section highlights articles and resources specific to marine science students, the For Students section is home to educational resources for everyone, including some select tutorials, information about careers and the industry, how to succeed at knowledge management and other tasks, lists of resources for those interested in or currently in the marine science industry, and fun projects and activities ranging in multiple levels of difficulty for scientists of all ages to attempt. TheVast encourages everyone to keep learning, and we want to help you do that by providing materials and resources that we believe are quality.
