Java OceanAtlas is a software application that provides a graphic exploration tool to examine and plot oceanographic data. The data sets were compiled from over 2000 vertical ocean sections collected prior to 1990. Basin-scale sections from 1990 - 1998 are also provided. Data types include pressure, temperature, salinity, dissolved oxygen, nitrate, phosphate, and silicate. Data plot types include ... Full description.

CARBONATE 3D reproduces and predicts 3-dimensional stratigraphic geometries and facies in carbonate and mixed carbonate siliciclastic depositional environments. It forward models sedimentary processes over geologic time. Modeled processes include carbonate platform rim and interior production, basinal sediment production, siliciclastic input, subaerial dissolution and erosion, transport and redeposition ...

The goal of this biocomplexity research project is to investigate the functional relationship between complexity in microbial communities and the biogeochemical cycles of natural ecosystems. The study includes sites in the Chesapeake Bay, the Choptank River, and the open ocean of the Sargasso Sea. The research will characterize the physical and chemical complexity of these systems in terms of chemical ... Full description.
