In August 2016, DOOS put out a call to the oceanographic community to contribute to a Deep Ocean Inventory in an effort to gain a better understanding of the current state of observations in the deep ocean.  Programs who contributed to the inventory were then used to populate the DOOS online interative map.  Below is a summary of programs who completed the inventory and are included in the map.
