This is the MBARI Oceanographic Decision Support System (ODSS). It provides real-time feedback of research activity in Monterey Bay and allows our scientists, engineers, and marine operators to have a coordinated view of all ships, vehicles, and instruments involved in MBARI experiments.

Clicking on the double arrow above the left-side “Data” panel will open a list of vessels and instruments under the “Platforms” section. Selecting any of those items will show the location of that particular asset. The “Layers” section shows various other types of information such as sea-surface temperature (SST), satellite chlorophyll measurements, or navigation charts. Dragging and zooming the map will provide different views of the activity in the bay.
