How Radioactive is Our Ocean Presentation

Help track radiation from Fukushima across the Pacific by proposing a sampling location on the West Coast of North America, Alaska, or Hawaii.

The Marine Mammal Identification Network

Have you seen a tag? A uniquely marked individual? An interesting behavior? Or maybe you are not quite sure what it is you saw? The Marine Animal Identification Network provides information on tagged animals (primarily seals) and a database of sightings.

Right Whale Listening Network

The world's last 350 North Atlantic right whales live along the East Coast. Collisions with ships are a deadly hazard, but new listening buoys are helping.

Seafloor Explorer

Identify species and ground cover in images of the seafloor, and help create a library of seafloor life in the habitats along the northeast continental shelf.
