Census of Marine Life


The Census of Marine Life was coordinated by a Secretariat based at the Consortium for Ocean Leadership in Washington, D.C. and governed by an international Scientific Steering Committee. Thirteen National and Regional Implementation Committees worked under the guidance of the international Scientific Steering Committee and served to strengthen the global reach of the Census in support of marine biodiversity research. A Synthesis Group was established to organize, integrate, and synthesize the vast information gathered by the Census to ensure comprehensive content and products for 2010. Census-wide communications, media relations, education, outreach activities were coordinated by the Census Education and Outreach Team based at the University of Rhode Island Graduate School of Oceanography’s Office of Marine Programs. The Mapping and Visualization Team based at Duke University’s Marine Geospatial Ecology Lab was responsible for developing and sharing methods to display the results of the ten-year Census of Marine Life.
