Regional framework to assess the regional monitoring indicators that measure the status of managed conservation areas set aside under the Micronesia Challenge. The tool allows you to see the monitoring progress and learn more about the monitoring data collected across the region.
Dataset that provides a direct internet link and resources pertaining to the CBD Global Coral Portal - a window to various sources of information on the status of coral reefs and the range of commitments, initiatives, and actions at different scales to protect and sustainably manage coral reefs and closely associated ecosystems in support of the achievement of the Aichi Biodiversity Targets and the Sustainable Development Goals.
The NOAA Coral Reef Watch program uses satellite data to provide current reef environmental conditions to quickly identify areas at risk for coral bleaching. Bleaching is the process by which corals lose the symbiotic algae that give them their distinctive colors. If a coral is severely bleached, disease and death become likely. Coral Reef Watch also offers a modeled Outlook that predicts the likelihood of coral bleaching heat stress on a week-by-week basis, up to four months in the future (the typical length of a bleaching season).
dataset with internet direct links and resources relating to the global seafloor geomorphic features that represents an important contribution towards the understanding of the distribution of blue habitats. Certain geomorphic feature are known to be good surrogates for biodiversity. For example, seamounts support a different suite of species to abyssal plains.
A direct internet link to and resources pertaining the Blue Habitat website which has been established as a portal for information on the global distribution of marine ‘blue’ habitats. Knowledge on the distribution of blue habitats is an important input into ocean management, marine spatial planning and biodiversity conservation.
The Pacific Community Results Report highlights the results achieved by SPC with our 26 Member countries and territories, and development partners. This dataset provides the data used in the Results Report provided in Excel and CSV formats.

Scientific data collected on the _Westward, Corwith Cramer_, and _Robert C. Seamans_ are invaluable products of SEA’s educational research programs. SEA supports dissemination and sharing of data with educators and researchers to benefit the broader science community and the public. We aim to encourage and ensure fair access to SEA data while also preserving the intellectual property of individual researchers and seeking opportunities for collaboration.
Portions of SEA’s digital data have been contributed to a variety of national archives for specific projects; you are welcome to freely access and utilize these resources without submitting a formal request. Proper citation is expected, see format below.
## Data Citation
Any product (e.g., thesis, capstone project, report, website, graphics, publication, presentation) by any person that includes data or samples collected onboard SEA vessels should include the following acknowledgement:

The IAEA's Marine Information System (MARiS) allows the search and recovery of more than 528,000 measurements of radioactivity data in the marine environment found in seawater, biota, sediment and suspended matter. The MARiS database and web site are maintained and developed by the Radiometrics Laboratory at the IAEA Environment Laboratories (IAEA-EL) in Monaco.
With a focus on the western Pacific, this portal provides ocean data relevant to a range of sectors and applications including tourism, fishing, shipping/boating, coastal inundation, environmental management etc. Designed with a user-friendly interface, the portal entry page features the applications, thereby negating the need for users to have universal knowledge of the types of information that may be relevant to their activity. The primary purpose of the portal is both data discovery, and a means of communicating ocean information.
