Drum roll, please. This Monday Google Earth meets Oceana, seabeds, the coast off of Galveston, and Cousteau films. From the New York Times today:

By choosing among 20 buttons holding archives of information, called “layers” by Google, a visitor can read logs of oceanographic expeditions, see old film clips from the heyday of Jacques-Yves Cousteau and check daily Navy maps of sea temperatures.

The replicated seas have detailed topography reflecting what is known about the abyss and continental shelves — and rougher areas where little is known.
