Marine Impacts via Google Earth
The National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis has a great site depicting human impacts in marine ecosystems. Above is one of their embedded kml files. Here is a jpeg.
The site also lets you look at maps depicting individual impact types including fishing, invasive species, acidification, etc. This was part of a project published in Science.
Special thanks to TakItWithMe for giving code to embed GE in this post.
