Do you want to see where my pet fish lives?

February 24, 2009

funny-fish1Google Earth recently announced it’s free upgrade with an ocean view. Google realized it wasn’t practical to have a land-only virtual tour when 70% of the Earth’s surface is covered in water. By expanding Google Earth to encompass the ocean, this raises awareness on the health of the sea and gives equal importance to the ocean environment. The new ocean features include topographical maps of the sea floor, locations of shipwrecks, algal blooms, phytoplankton maps, and of course, the house of our favorite clownfish, Nemo. 🙂

If you Google Earth’s ocean feature isn’t enough for you, then you might want to join the Monterey Accelerated Research Station or MARS, formed last November. This month they’ve delivered a 502 lb., $600,000 webcam to 3,000 ft below sea level in order to study deep sea habitats off the coast of California. The Eye-in-the-Sea camera is the first to send live stream bits of the deep sea for continued research on the effects of global warming in the ocean. This test run is being watched by scientists around the world and if successful, it will lead to substantial research progress in the real of deep-sea environments and marine life.
