Different kinds of Seaweed

I love seaweed, but do not know the names or types other than nori. The Asian market by my office has a while isle of seaweed. There are so many different kinds, but I do not know anything about them.

I am hoping in this thread we can discuss seaweed in general and talk about the different types and how they are used. I am also, more specifically, looking to find out what kind is generally used in miso soup. I would love to get some of that as I have the miso at home and have been using it a lot.

It's kombu that goes into miso soup.

Kombu and nori are the only ones I've used.
