collates microplastic data from across the globe to create maps and models to better understand their distribution and transportation across oceans, giving scientists and researchers a better understanding of microplastic’s impacts on human and marine health and the economy.
integrates and synthesizes various real-time and static datasets into a single interactive map for fast visualization of situations that may adversely impact the environment and improves communication and coordination among responders and environmental stakeholders.
Digital Atlas is an interactive map that provides access to an updated archive of the NOAA Office of Ocean Exploration and Research (OER) data, information, and products including sonar, oceanographic, imagery, video, and collected specimen information that contribute greatly to scientific understanding of the world’s ocean.
offers a map collection of the long-term physical, biological, environmental, economic, and living marine resource data that define the baseline conditions of Gulf of Mexico ecosystems. Descriptions of each map topic, written by subject matter experts, explain how the data were gathered and how they affect Gulf of Mexico communities.
Coastal Ecosystem Maps integrate layers from the Gulf of Mexico Data Atlas into a single environment that allows users to select and view datasets individually or simultaneously. Additional data layers include model data such as sea surface currents, overlays for bathymetry, location names and other contextual information.
(IMLGS) is a database and web application that enables researchers to discover, learn about, and access geological data acquired from across the world's seabed and lakebed environments. Data access includes the digital data maintained at NCEI as well as the physical samples curated at national and international partner repositories.
