NOAA Webinar: OceanReports Web Application
The NOAA Office of National Marine Sanctuaries will host a webinar on the OceanReports web application on Oct. 8 from 6-7 p.m. OceanReports is a comprehensive web-based spatial assessment tool for the ocean in the U.S., designed to improve decision-making and increase transparency for ocean and coastal users, and resource managers. The tool contains approximately 100 distinct data layers capable of analyzing energy and minerals, natural resources (including species and habitats), transportation and infrastructure, oceanographic and biophysical conditions, and the local ocean economy for any area of the U.S. Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ). Participants will learn more about OceanReports from Dr. James A. Morris, Jr., Marine Ecologist at NOAA’s National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science, and help NOAA determine how formal and informal educators can utilize this robust online product.
OceanReports was developed through a partnership between the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, NOAA, and the Department of Energy, and utilizes new and authoritative data from MarineCadastre.gov and other trusted sources.
