Underneath the primary navigation bar will be found the secondary navagation bar for the currently selected primary option.
For example, this page is the "About" (primary) section of the website, of which you are viewing the "Website" (secondary) selection page.
Clicking on the selections "Index", "Science", "Project", "Survey", "Surveyors", or "Sponsorship" in the secondary navigation bar will take you to one of these other pages within the About primary section.
