Ocean Biographic Information System

Posted by in Fun stuff

Just stumbled on this site and was quite in awe regardign the amount of data recorded there. OBIS is an amazing online database with an über-powerful search engin to learn more about marine species (i.e. where and when can I see hammerhead-sharks).

With our evolving OBIS database repository, users can identify biodiversity hotspots and large-scale ecological patterns, analyze dispersions of species over time and space, and plot species’ locations with temperature, salinity, and depth.
