The Marine Global Earth Observatory (MarineGEO) is a global network of partners focused on understanding how coastal marine ecosystems work—and how to keep them working. It brings together simple sampling technology (ARMS) and next-generation genetic sequencing to fill the large gaps that still exist when estimating marine biodiversity.
