Is another age of earth exploration around the corner?


Here I think solely about exploration of earth, and what belongs to it, including its atmosphere in its widest sense, excluding "space" that belongs to other threads. Earth may at first seems "fully explored" compared to all things extraterrestrial, but I suspect this is far from being the situation. How much has scientist really made deep (in detail as well as litterally!)reseaarch of everything under water, not to speak of underground and under ice? Could it be we have only a crude picture, compared with what would be possible and at an increasingly affordable cost, given all the present and emerginmg technologies?
Will submarine research, that is under the oceans, rivers, lakes, be the new "hot" field of research for, say, arhaeologists, geologists, and of natural history for the nearest years to come? Because of varying water levels most countries with a coastline, or big lakes or rivers (meaning practically all countries) will have some of their lands, and their history, "lost" under water. Then add the lots of wrecks(just read about finding of shipwrecks at Fourni, Greece).

There is a new age of deep sea exploration that is currently being conducted.

I think definitely yes! Internet, cellphones, computers, robots and now 3d printers that can create everything from nothing...The revolution is coming up. And by the way, the writers from birdie and I are writing an article about future revolution, and I will be glad to share it with you if anybody is interested!

I hope it comes with a new age of deep sea cleaning, to remove the tens of millions of tons of pollution we have already dumped there.

Well. My intention was not to discuss inventions in general, but finding out more about places. To discuss possible discoveries of "territories" and spaces.
Not that there is anything wrong with discussions of technologies, but they deserve their own separate thread - or?
