Regional Databases and Publications

The NOAA Miami Regional Library cooperates with the southeast NOAA field libraries, and the NOAA scientists studying various southern and Gulf Coast regional ecosystems, to make accessible a number of online regional databases and virtual libraries which focus on published and unpublished scientific literature. Typical topics covered in these databases include oceanography, atmospheric science, aquaculture, and fisheries. The databases are searchable versions of the key resource documents.
