SFP Data Access

AOML SFP physical, chemical, and biological data have been collected across the south Florida coastal ocean which includes the nearshore marine habitats of Biscayne and Florida Bays, the southwest Florida shelf, and the Florida Keys reef tract. Program data include synoptic measurements from bay-wide and regional shipboard surveys, time-series from oceanographic moorings, and Lagrangian surface drifter trajectories. These data sets are freely available for academic, research, or professional purposes.

Due to a cessation of funding beginning in August 2012, the AOML SFP has suspended regional shipboard surveys and drifter deployments, and has recovered all project moorings. Though the SFP field component is in hiatus, scientific analyses continue on the project's historical datasets. Should funding for data collection activities be restored, SFP field operations will resume.
