If you work on marine life in the Mid-Atlantic and want to learn more about the ongoing work of the Mid-Atlantic Regional Planning Body and the state-based Mid-Atlantic Regional Council on the Ocean, check out this webinar next week!
April Webinar: the Marine Life Data and Analysis Team (MDAT) Project
A Marine Life Data and Analysis Team (MDAT) has aggregated a trove of data related to marine life populations, distribution and trends in the Mid-Atlantic and throughout the East Coast. That data will soon take the form of several new map layers on this site and other regional ocean data portals. Join us April 5 at 11 a.m. as project lead Patrick Halpin of the Duke University Geospatial Ecology Lab shares his insights on the MDAT research and the data it is producing. This webinar will be presented by the MARCO Portal Team in partnership with the Northeast Regional Ocean Council (NROC), Marine Cadastre.gov, and NOAA’s National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science and National Marine Fisheries Service.
Pre-registration is requested by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
