Site highlights marine biodiversity research

The U.S. Marine Biodiversity Observing Network has launched a new website to improve researchers’ and policymakers’ understanding of the connections between marine biodiversity and ecosystems.

The site profiles current projects that are integrating biological and environmental datasets and testing molecular and remote sensing technologies in the Arctic Ocean, in kelp forests off the coast of California and on coral reefs in the Gulf of Mexico and Florida Keys. It also outlines the network’s future goals, including data integration, animated seascape mapping and new ways for genomic sampling and analysis.

The Marine Biodiversity Observing Network is a partnership of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, NASA and the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management.
