Explore California’s Seamounts with Storymaps

Virtually Explore California’s Seamounts Using Our Interactive Story Map

Marine Conservation Institute recently authored a pair of Storymaps (Esri) that allows viewers to take a virtual, interactive look at a few of the magnificent seamounts found in California waters. Seamounts are massive underwater volcanoes with a unique biology and geology that makes them truly impressive marine features. In each Storymap, you will find spectacular video and images from the deep seafloor, interactive maps displaying the distribution and conservation status of the California seamounts, and accompanying text that overviews the biology and history of these beautiful and remote habitats.
