NOAA Updates Its Marine Ecosystem Website


The US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has announced the launch of its latest version of the National Marine Ecosystem Status website.

The site provides all of NOAA’s ecosystem data in one convenient place. The website is designed to offer a host of stakeholders and an in-depth look into marine data as a convenient one-stop-shop.

The site also provides users with a distillation of the data by the Ecosystem Indicator Working Group, which operates under the auspices of the agency’s Science Council. This gives users a better appreciation of the data with the ability to see a clear picture of the state of the ecosystems.

The site is primarily aimed at scientists, educators, outreach specialists and other interested parties who seek information on how marine ecosystems across the US are functioning. Previously these groups had to collate the information themselves from separate sources since it was not available in one single place.
