Coastal and Marine Geoscience Data System — CMGDS
This web site provides data services for the published data of the Coastal and Marine Geology Program.
California Seafloor Mapping Program — CSMP
CSMP is a cooperative program to create a comprehensive coastal/marine geologic and habitat base map series for all of California's State waters.
Field activity information search
Search for information on USGS Coastal and Marine Science Program field activities and data collection.
National Archive of Marine Seismic Surveys — NAMSS
NAMSS is a marine seismic reflection profile data archive consisting of data acquired by or contributed to U.S. Department of the Interior agencies. The USGS is committed to safekeeping this data on behalf of the academic community and the nation. These data are provided with free and open access.
Coastal and Marine Geology Program Interactive Maps
Links to Coastal and Marine Geology GIS data and metadata that are available for download. Content can be accessed by region (U.S. Atlantic Coast, U.S. Gulf of Mexico, and U.S. Pacific Coast), or by research projects.
Data Viewers and Visualization
Interactive maps allow users to generate their own data sets based on many parameters, and some provide visualization services for hindcasting and forecasting.
- Coastal and Marine Geology Video and Photograph Portal
This portal contains USGS video and photography of the seafloor off of coastal California, Alaska, Hawaii, Puget Sound, and Massachusetts, and aerial imagery of the coastline along segments of the Gulf of Mexico and mid-Atlantic coasts. These data were collected as part of the USGS Coastal and Marine Geology Program: https://doi.org/10.5066/F7JH3J7N
- Coastal Storm Modeling System — CoSMoS
The Coastal Storm Modeling System (CoSMoS) makes detailed predictions (meter-scale) of storm-induced coastal flooding, erosion and cliff failures over large geographic scales (100s of kilometers).
- Our Coast Our Future — OCOF
Our Coast, Our Future is a collaborative, user-driven project focused on providing San Francisco Bay Area coastal resource and land use managers and planners locally relevant, online maps and tools to help understand, visualize, and anticipate vulnerabilities to sea level rise and storms within the bay and on the outer coast from Half Moon Bay to Bodega Bay.
- USGS Coastal Change Hazards Portal
Provides interactive access to coastal change science and data for our Nation’s coasts
The CCH portal is a collaborative project between USGS Coastal and Marine Geology Program (CMGP) scientists and informatics specialists and software engineers at the USGS Center for Integrated Data Analytics (CIDA).
