Great Lakes Information Network
The Great Lakes Information Network (GLIN) is a partnership that provides one place online for people to find information relating to the binational Great Lakes-St. Lawrence region of North America. GLIN offers a wealth of data and information about the region's environment, economy, tourism, education and more.
International Oceanographic Data and Information Exchange (IODE)
The Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO -- International Oceanographic Data and Information Exchange (IODE) was established in 1961 to enhance marine research, exploitation and development by facilitating the exchange of oceanographic data and information between participating Member States and by meeting the needs of users for data and information products.
Marine Metadata Interoperability
Marine scientists face an opportunity and a challenge in the volume of data available from various ocean observing systems. The MMI Project can help make it easier for you to find, access, and use other data sets. If you create marine science data sets, MMI can help make your data easier to advertise, distribute, reuse, and combine with other data sets. Our goal is to promote collaborative research in the marine science domain, by simplifying the incredibly complex world of metadata into specific, straightforward guidance. MMI hopes to encourage scientists and data managers at all levels to apply good metadata practices from the start of a project, by providing the best advice and resources for data management. MMI maintains this website to foster communication and collaboration among its hundreds of members, and provides forums for discussion of diverse topics related to marine data management. MMI is also developing web applications and stand-alone tools to enable sophisticated interactions across marine data systems.
Marine Protected Areas of the US
Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) serve many different purposes and are established for a variety of reasons. The term MPA has been used in many ways as well. Those impacted by or interested in MPAs have varying perceptions on the value and use of MPAs. This website's purpose is to provide information and resources that assist in national dialogue and decision-making about MPAs.
Sanctuary Integrated Monitoring Network (SIMoN) is an integrated, long-term program that takes an ecosystem approach to identify and understand changes to the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary.
United Nations Environment Programme -- Regional Seas
The Regional Seas Conventions and Action Plans cover issues ranging from chemical wastes and coastal development to the conservation of marine animals and ecosystems.
