Ecosystem Based Management

Fisheries Scientists are able to establish new regional methodologies for Ecosystem Based Management with MARACOOS surface current & 13 temperature maps, and 3-D glider data delivered as Matlab data files for combined analyses with fish survey data. Ocean Forecasters are able to produce an ensemble of 3-D ocean nowcasts and forecasts by using MARCOOS 3-D temperature, salinity and current data for assimilation delivered via OPeNDAP from the MARACOOS server.

NOAA Coast Watch, Fisheries Scientists, Commercial and Recreational Fishers are able to more safely plan with access to MARACOOS derived products from the above ensemble of model forecasts such as maps of declouded sea surface temperature, bottom temperature, thermocline depth and ocean color delivered via Interactive Data Asset Map.
