Ocean – Tools
Science and information are fundamental to effective marine planning. Marine planning involves inclusive discussion and analyses of the status and potential uses of 3-dimensional areas of coastal, marine, and Great Lakes ecosystems (including the water column) and their potential changes over time. Decision-support tools can help inform the marine planning process. Below you will find links to several tools that are currently available. If you have developed a tool for marine planning and would like to share it here, please contact us using our Feedback page.
