The Marine Weather Portal provides marine observations, forecasts and short and long-fuse warnings for the coastal waters of North Carolina, South Carolina and northern Georgia and the Atlantic and Gulf Coast areas of the Southern Region. Currently, region-specific information on marine and coastal conditions is collected by, stored and disseminated from a wide range of government and academic institutions and includes a variety of information types and protocols. This product helps meet the need for improved, coordinated delivery of relevant information to a broad user community. One of the most efficient ways for coastal ocean observing systems to disseminate marine information to the public is through a partnership with local NOAANWS Weather Forecast Offices (WFOs), since the targeted audiences already rely on these offices for marine observations and forecast needs.
