Oregon ShoreZone

ShoreZone is an online inventory of the biology and geology of North America's Pacific coast from Oregon to Alaska and in-between. Coastal data, imagery, and maps are made accessible to manage the coast for the benefit of the many animals and plants, people and industries who depend on it. ShoreZone's baseline data helps coastal managers and other users to understand, respond to, and plan for the dynamic coastal changes taking place in the Pacific Northwest and Alaska - changes such as increasing storm frequency and coastal erosion, projected increases in shipping traffic, and offshore oil and gas development.

Integrated Ocean Observing System - IOOS

The Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS®) is a national-regional partnership working to provide new tools and forecasts to improve safety, enhance the economy, and protect our environment. Integrated ocean information is available in near real time, as well as retrospectively. NANOOS is the IOOS regional data portal for the Northwest. There are 11 regional data portals.

Partnership for Interdisciplinary Studies of Coastal Oceans - PISCO

PISCO is a long-term program led by scientists from four core campuses: Oregon State University; Stanford University’s Hopkins Marine Station; University of California, Santa Cruz; and University of California, Santa Barbara. PISCO is designed to understand the California Current Large Marine Ecosystem through the collection and sharing of biological, chemical, and physical data about ocean ecosystems in the nearshore portions of the California Current Large Marine Ecosystem. Partnerships with Oregon State University, Data Observation Network for Earth (DataONE), and the Pacific Rocky Intertidal Monitoring program at UC Santa Cruz help to provide access platforms to the PISCO data.

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution

The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) s dedicated to research and education to advance understanding of the ocean and its interaction with the Earth system, and to communicating this understanding for the benefit of society. Many data and repositories are based at WHOI, including the Alvin Frame-Grabber, WHO data library and archives, WHOI Buoy Group Oceanic Data Archive.

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).

Coastal Observation & Seabird Survey Team (COASST)

The Coastal Observation and Seabird Survey Team (COASST) is a citizen science project housed at the University of Washington. COASST trains coastal residents in their communities. Post-training, participants pledge to conduct monthly surveys. At present, three basic types of data are collected: 1) beachcast birds, 2) marine debris, and 3) evidence of human use of the beach environment. From the COASST website, you can view the data in map, table and list forms.

International Coastal Atlas Network (ICAN)

The International Coastal Atlas Network (ICAN) connects organizations implementing coastal web atlases to inform regional decision-making and promote worldwide coastal conservation, policies, and management. A long term goal of ICAN is the development of a global atlas which draws from locally maintained coastal web atlases to create a world-wide digital atlas of distributed, high-quality data and information. The Oregon Explorer program is a member of ICAN.

NANOOS NVS Weather & Ocean Data

The Northwest Association of Networked Ocean Observing Systems (NANOOS) is the Regional Association of the national Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS) in the Pacific Northwest, primarily Washington and Oregon. NVS provides NANOOS information and products related to weather and ocean data.

Ocean Observatories Initiative Data Portal

The National Science Foundation-funded Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI) is an integrated infrastructure program composed of science-driven platforms and sensor systems that measure physical, chemical, geological and biological properties and processes from the seafloor to the air-sea interface.Over 200 unique data products are measured or derived from the nearly 75 models of specialized instrumentation used in the OOI from the air-sea interface, seafloor/crust, and water column. This data is accessible from the OOI data portal.
