OD51B:
Integrating, Disseminating, and Visualizing Quality Data at the Regional Scale to Support Resilient Coastal Communities I Panel

Session ID#: 92504

Session Description:
Ocean, coastal, and Great Lakes monitoring is increasing in importance as data needs grow to address challenges to coastal communities. As extreme weather events impact coastal communities from the Gulf to the Arctic, routine flooding and sea level rise affect millions of people; harmful algal blooms are occurring more often and lasting longer; fish habitats are shifting in response to changing conditions; and ocean acidification is impacting shellfish aquaculture and marine ecosystems.

Decision makers and stakeholders, and the information product developers who serve them, require consistent and easy access to the increasing quantity and sources of ocean data, in order to protect life, property, economic health, and overall well being of coastal communities.  

This session will explore how regional coastal and ocean data portals across the United States integrate quality data from a variety of federal and non-federal sources to deliver timely and reliable information to data product developers, government authorities, and stakeholders to improve understanding and aid decision making.
