Census of Marine Life
Concluded in 2010, CoML was a broad global initiative that supported 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 engaged more than 2000 scientists and marine professionals from 80 countries in a ten-year effort to assess and explain the diversity, distribution and abundance of marine life in the world’s oceans – past, present and future.
