Oceans in Google Earth...

Google recently unveiled its newest version of Google Earth at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco. Google Earth 5.0 introduces a number of new features, but most notably Ocean in Google Earth. Finally, you can now explore what makes up two thirds of our planet - the ocean.

Here is what Google tells us what you can do with ocean in Google Earth 5.0:

  • Dive beneath the surface and visit the deepest part of the ocean, the Mariana Trench
  • Explore the ocean with top marine experts including National Geographic and BBC
  • Learn about ocean observations, climate change, and endangered species
  • Discover new places including surf, dive, and travel hot spots and shipwrecks

To help make this project possible, Google teamed with a number of scientists and organizations including NOAA, NASA, National Geographic Society, BBC, Monterey Bay Aquarium, Scripps Oceanography and many more.
