- SeamountsOnline: an online database of species
distributions on seamounts.
- The Global Census of Marine Life
on Seamounts (CenSeam).
This international research collaboration is aimed at determining the role of
seamounts in the biogeography, biodiversity, productivity, and evolution of
marine organisms, and evaluating the effects of human exploitation on
seamounts. Karen is a member of the CenSeam secretariat.
- The Marine Metadata Interoperability Project (MMI). This
community effort, led by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute, is
promoting the exchange, integration and use of marine data through enhanced
data publishing, discovery, documentation, and accessibility.
- The OceanLife Project.
OceanLife, a partnership with the SDSC's Advanced Query Processing Lab, is
developing new data integration technologies for marine biodiversity research
and marine resource management.
