A blog, short for 'web log,' is an easy-to-update website or webpage where authors write regular entries in a diary-like format.
Did you know that the National Ocean Service hosts several blogs, with frequent posts ranging from nautical chart news to the latest coastal science? Here's a round-up:
Coast Survey creates and updates charts of the U.S. coast, publishes the United States Coast Pilot, and responds to navigational emergencies in U.S. waters and at our nation's ports. Keep up to date with the latest news with this blog.
Are you a 'coastal geogeek?' Then this is for you. GeoZone, from NOAA's Coastal Services Center, is a blog that helps coastal managers turn data into information that can be used when making important decisions about coastal management.
This blog is a portal to share news and ideas specific to NOAA's Environmental Sensitivity Index (ESI) maps and products. Get updates on new ESI map products and tools as they become available.
Keep the sea free of debris! This blog, from NOAA's Marine Debris Program, is part of a national and international effort focusing on identifying, reducing, and preventing debris in the marine environment.
Learn about the research being conducted within NOAA's National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science. This blog offers a 'behind the scenes' look at ongoing research of our oceans, coastal areas, and Great Lakes by NOAA scientists in their own words.
NOAA's Office of Response and Restoration develops scientific
solutions to marine pollution. On this blog, scientists and staff discuss how NOAA deals with marine debris, responds to spills of oil and other hazardous waste, and works to restore the environment after spills.
