NOAA Office for Coastal Management have developed and launched a web-based tool for generating comprehensive reports from ocean areas that users specify. The reports contain information about:

  • General Information (statistics, physical characteristics and jurisdictional information)

  • Energy and minerals, such as offshore wind potential, oil & gas resources and more

  • Natural resources and conservation, (habitat information, migratory/endangered species, etc.)

  • Oceanographic and biophysical (climatological information, prevailing weather conditions)

  • Transportation and infrastructure (marine vessel traffic, anchorage areas, and more)

  • Economics and commerce (details on marine-dependent jobs in the area, and commercial activities

OceanReports launches directly from a web browser, and users may view the reports online, or download them as PDFs.
