GSAA Coast and Ocean Portal Webinar


The World Ocean Council (WOC), Governors’ South Atlantic Alliance (GSAA), and the Southeast Coastal Ocean Observing Regional Association (SECOORA) hosted the first of three industry forums in the South Atlantic region, a Webinar to see a demonstration of and contribute to the development of the GSAA Coast and Ocean Portal (

The GSAA Portal is being designed to provide information and tools necessary to support coastal and ocean management decisions for the region. Data is easily accessible and available to agencies, industries and the public. On August 21st, 2014, there was a live demonstration of the GSAA Portal and feedback session to discuss how it can best benefit ocean industries and how industries can contribute to it.  Presentations from the webinar are available below and notes from the session will be available soon.
