Another of the new features on this website will be Google Maps. For future posts with georeferencing we will now include a Google Map. To highlight this new feature, I have picked one of my study sites. Invertebrate Cliff is an off-axis canyon in the Monterey Canyon complex. The base of cliff is around 1km.
