Scope and content

Subseries contains correspondence, research data, and conference minutes and notes related to the Census of Marine Life subcommittee, Census of the Diversity of Abyssal Marine Life (CeDAMar). The Census of the Diversity of Abyssal Marine Life examined the feeding patterns and distribution ranges of life in the abyssal plains and larger oceanic basins in the Southern Atlantic and Southern Pacific oceans, ranging from single-celled organisms to larger cephalopods. The project, led by scientists Pedro Martinez Arbizu and Craig Smith, catalogued more than 500 new species and examined the causes of change to abyssal life far removed from the ocean floor (in the form of climate change, pollution and mining efforts).
