Ocean Data Geoportal

Technical paper: Design and Development of a Greenland Ice and Metocean Geoportal (ATC 2015)

A web-based marine geoportal from which your ice, meteorological, oceanographic, and seabed data can be integrated and accessed.

The geoportal is a collaborative tool that allows multiple users to interact with the system.

geoportal

Web based marine geo-portal data can include:

  • sea ice
  • icebergs
  • oceanography: currents, waves, water quality, etc
  • meteorology: winds, air temperature, humidity, visibility, etc
  • seabed: bathymetry, ice scouring, sediment
