The Census of Marine Life (CoML) is a broad global initiative that supports research at the frontiers of our oceans: the hottest undersea vents, the deepest and darkest depths, the rapidly changing poles, and the most interesting biological “hotspots.” CoML projects engage more than 2000 scientists and marine professionals from 80 countries in an initial ten-year effort to assess and explain the diversity, distribution and abundance of marine life in the world’s oceans – past, present and future.
