To provide representative sampling around Europe 10 regional networks are proposed in contrasting oceanographic regions: In addition, a mobile response observatory will be available for rapid deployment in areas of anthropogenic or natural disasters to provide data for environment management and government agencies.

The Census on Google Earth — Census of Marine Life Maps and Visualization Every week the latest Census discoveries are added to Google Earth, the 3-D geographic explorer from Google. Census waterdrop icons mark the location where researchers have been exploring. Google Earth lets you share the excitement of Census of Marine Life explorations as scientists uncover the mysteries of what lives below the surface of the global ocean. A world of marine discoveries including 50 different kinds of Arctic jellies, a colossal sea star, and Antarctica’s biggest-ever amphipod and other interesting, rare, and new marine species can be found. Or one can follow along on scientific explorations to the coldest, saltiest water on the planet or to a new ocean environment created by an ice shelf break the size of Jamaica or to the hottest hydrothermal vent ever discovered—hot enough to melt lead!

Quotes:“The development of new agents with the ability to reengineer existing life forms to have an offensive capacity poses a growing challenge.” - Page 35 “In addition, biotechnology—…. can drive new forms of human behavior and association, creating profound cross-cultural ethical questions…… For example, direct modification of DNA at fertilization is widely researched with a goal of removing defective genes; however, discussions of future capabilities open the possibility for designing humans with unique physical, emotional, or cognitive abilities.” – Page 35 end Like this:
