    Need a calming way to kill some time at your desk today? As per usual, Google's there for you. But not just in searching for "happy place" results.

    The new underwater panoramas in high definition should do the trick.

    Google Maps will now surface (pun intended) gorgeous panoramas of sea turtles and reefs in association with the World Wonders Project, a website "that brings modern and ancient world heritage sites online," according to Google's official blog.

    Google is also partnering with The Catlin Seaview Survey, a major study of the world's reefs, to provide these images and raise awareness around ocean acidity and how it affects fragile underwater ecosystems.
