The accelerating impacts of climate change are driving an increased demand for ocean and coastal information to support climate resilience. This growing demand presents an opportunity for the creation of products and services that support a transformed blue economy that maximizes the economic potential of the ocean while ensuring the sustainable use of ocean and coastal resources and the delivery of a climate ready nation. As one of the world’s largest providers of ocean and coastal data and information, NOAA is growing the ocean economy by improving the quantity, breadth, dissemination, access, and applicability of its foundational data and information.
