Arctic Assets Map

The Alaska Ocean Observing System (AOOS) announces that a new version of
the Arctic Research Assets Map has been released. To access the map,

Developed by AOOS, the map shows the location of research instruments
and monitoring efforts in the Bering, Chukchi, and Beaufort Seas. The
map is intended to assist with region-wide planning and research
logistics, and also allows the public to get a visual impression of what
type of data collection is taking place in the Alaskan Arctic. The
updated version includes new instruments being deployed this season, and
allows users to personalize their view.
