MarineGEO - Hong Kong

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.

Pictured are scientists from Hong Kong, the United States and South Korea gathering for the retrieval of the first batch of Hong Kong ARMS in October 2017.
