Plastics Data on SOOSmap

SOOSmap gives you access to data from key circumpolar research programmes. In SOOSmap, you can explore temporal, spatial, and thematic distributions of observing platforms. These platforms include Argo floats, MEOP seals, continuous plankton recorder tows, tide gauges. For data types that are not yet fully standardised and aggregated, like the SOOS Mooring Network, SOOSmap provides links to the data centres that hold the data from each of the platforms. The observing platforms are given context by a series of base layers, including CCAMLR regions, sea surface temperature, and sea-ice concentration.

For more information, and to use the product, visit SOOSmap on the SOOS website.
