Marine Mammal Health Monitoring and Analysis Platform (MMHMAP): Collates marine mammal data into a database. Compatible for integration with environmental data sets.

NOAA CoastWatch/West Coast Regional Node: Provides access to near real-time satellite data to monitor, restore, and manage U.S. coastal ocean resources.

 

NRDC Ocean Acidification Hotspots: Interactive maps that identify which coastal communities in the United States are most vulnerable to ocean acidification. Analysis focuses specifically on the potential economic and social impacts to communities that derive benefits from shelled mollusk harvests, which are particularly threatened by ocean acidification.

 

OCEANADAPT: Tracks shifts in the distribution of U.S. marine species with changing ocean conditions. Users can search and download data on the geographic and depth ranges of more than 650 species of fish and invertebrates and track how those distributions have changed over time.

 

Sunburts Sensors: Designs and manufactures autonomous instruments that measure the marine and freshwater inorganic carbon parameters pCO2 (partial pressure of carbon dioxide) and pH using patented drift-free technology. Winner of the Wendy Schmidt Ocean Health XPRIZE.

 

Surging Seas Allows users to see the impacts of climate change on sea level rise in various US cities.This tool shows which US cities may face “lock-in dates” beyond which the cumulative effects of carbon emissions likely commit them to long-term sea-level rise that could submerge land under more than half of the city’s population.
