Massachusetts & Rhode Island Bays and Shelf (MARIBS)

The Massachusetts and Rhode Island Bays and Shelf (MARIBS) is a composite of observation systems in the northern-most sector of MARACOOS.


Overlapping slightly with the NERACOOS region to the northeast and Long Island Sound subregion to the southwest, it includes Cape Cod Bay, Buzzards Bay, Narragansett Bay, Martha's Vineyard Sound, and Block Island Sound as well as the shallower half of the Southern New England Shelf. It involves several institutions as outlined in the tables below.

Our objective here is to gradually compile and maintain a list of various projects collecting data. It should be noted, however, that a) some of these institutions are not yet official members of MARACOOS and b) this does NOT include ALL the potential partners. We hope to provide a "get data" link for each of these projects that will allow users a more direct link to the data they need.
