Random information on the term “OBIS”:

The Census of Marine Life was a 10-year, US $650 million scientific initiative, involving a global network of researchers in more than 80 nations, engaged to assess and explain the diversity, distribution, and abundance of life in the oceans. The world’s first comprehensive Census of Marine Life — past, present, and future — was released in 2010 in London.[1] Initially supported by funding from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, the project was successful in generating many times that initial investment in additional support and substantially increased the baselines of knowledge in often underexplored ocean realms, as well as engaging over 2,700 different researchers for the first time in a global collaborative community united in a common goal, and has been described as “one of the largest scientific collaborations ever conducted”.

According to Jesse Ausubel, Senior Research Associate of the Program for the Human Environment of Rockefeller University and science advisor to the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, the idea for a “Census of Marine Life” originated in conversations between himself and Dr. J. Frederick Grassle, an oceanographer and benthic ecology professor at Rutgers University, in 1996.[2] Grassle had been urged to talk with Ausubel by former colleagues at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and was at that time unaware that Ausubel was also a program manager at the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, funders of a number of other large scale “public good” science-based projects such as the Sloan Digital Sky Survey.[3] Ausubel was instrumental in persuading the Foundation to fund a series of “feasibility workshops” over the period 1997-1998 into how the project might be conducted,[4] one result of these workshops being the broadening of the initial concept from a “Census of the Fishes” into a comprehensive “Census of Marine Life”.[5] Results from these workshops, plus associated invited contributions, formed the basis of a special issue of Oceanography magazine in 1999[6]; later that year, a workshop in Washington, D.C. addressed the formation of an Ocean Biogeographic Information System (OBIS) which would serve to collate existing knowledge about the distribution of organisms in the ocean and form the information management component of the Census.[7]
