Google Oceans Greatly Expands Knowledge Of Ocean Science And Environmental Protection

Google Earth has released a major update to their software called Google Oceans. It will be interesting to see how oceanographers use this tool to communicate science and environmental issues to the general public. As Dr. Sylvia Earle writes,

“I’ve been struggling my whole life to figure out how to reach people and get them to understand they’re connected to the ocean,” Dr. Earle said.

“But I go to the supermarket and still see the United Nations of fish for sale,” she said. “Marine sanctuaries are still not really protected. Google Earth gets all this information now and puts it in one place for the littlest kid and the stuffiest grownup to see in a way that hasn’t been possible in all precedinghistory.”
