Coastal & Oceanic Plankton Ecology, Production, & Observation Database - COPEPOD

The Coastal & Oceanic Plankton Ecology, Production & Observation Database (COPEPOD) is an online database of plankton abundance, biomass, and composition data compiled from a global assortment of cruises, projects, and institutional holdings hosted by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). This global plankton database provides plankton and ecosystem researchers with an integrated data set of quality-reviewed, globally distributed plankton abundance, biomass and composition data. From this website, a variety of visualization tools and maps are also accessible (e.g., interactive plankton atlas, time series data and tools, ecosystem data and visualization tools).
