Google Earth provides a map of ocean depth. This map lets you pan to different parts of the globe, and it provides a detailed topographic depiction of the depth of the ocean floor across the globe.

The ocean information on Google Earth also includes thousands of pictures and videos submitted by governmental and private scientists. This detail allows more detailed study of the ocean. Interesting geological aspects of the ocean are accompanied by descriptions of these structures. For example, deep sea vents or major underwater ocean ranges include details about the geological forces that lead to these complex formations on the ocean floor.
