UNIBEST (UNIform Beach Sediment Transport)-CL+ is a tool for modeling sediment transport along the coast.
SLAMM-View is a web-mapping application that portrays pairs of simulation results from the Sea Level Affects Marshes Model (SLAMM) with other contextual layers such as state and county boundaries, roads, and National Wetland Inventory data via web mapping services. SLAMM-View utilizes a combination of server and client software (Java and Java-script) based on Image Matters' userSmarts.
SimCoast is a fuzzy logic rule-based expert system designed to enable researchers, managers and decision-makers to create and evaluate different policy scenarios for coastal zone management. It is interdisciplinary and multi-sectoral. It aims to combine traditional and advanced specialist knowledge about coastal zones with a set of reasoning and analytical tools. Experts involved include engineers, natural and social scientists, lawmakers, administrators, community and national leaders.
Overview The Global Surface Water Explorer maps the location and temporal distribution of water surfaces at the global scale for 1984-2015 and provides statistics on the extent and change of those water surfaces. Users can view the data on an interactive map or download datasets.
The Nature Conservancy in collaborating with citizens, public agencies, academic institutions and other nonprofit groups is working to restore the health of Green Bay for people and nature. One of the many challenges facing the bay is the loss of coastal wetlands, which clean polluted water, intercept waste, protect our shorelines from erosion, provide food and shelter for migratory birds and serve as nurseries for fish and other aquatic life.
CanVis is a visualization program used to "see" potential impacts from coastal development or sea level rise. Users can download background pictures and insert the objects (hotel, house, marina, or other objects) of their choosing. The software is used by municipalities to brainstorm new ideas and policies, undertake project planning, and make presentations.
The Great Lakes Regional Water Use Database provides comparable water use information on withdrawals, diversions and consumptive uses. This database supports the states and provinces in implementing Article 4 of the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin Water Resources Compact and Article 301 of the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin Sustainable Water Resources Agreement.
This Great Lakes Coastal Wetlands Monitoring Program involves monitoring of Great Lakes coastal wetland biota, habitat, and water quality to provide information on coastal wetland condition using fish, birds, calling amphibians, wetland vegetation, aquatic macroinvertebrates, and water quality. Limited data from this monitoring is available to anonymous users, while the remaining of the data is available to registered users. Data from this monitoring program is used to inform the IBIs in the Coastal Wetlands Progress Tracker.
Bathymetry of the Great Lakes has been compiled as a component of a NOAA project to rescue Great Lakes lake floor geological and geophysical data and make it more accessible to the public. The project is a cooperative effort between investigators at the NOAA National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) and the NOAA Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory (GLERL) was compiled utilizing the entire historic sounding database.
