Coastal Research Webportal
The Coastal Research Webportal is a free resource developed for local councils and researchers to:
- access current and previous research projects,
- find related publications, and
- links to a range of available data and metadata.

eReefs is a collaborative project focussed on the Great Barrier Reef - will provide products akin to that provided by the Bureau of Meteorology for weather. This information will benefit government agencies, Reef managers, policy makers, researchers, industry and local communities. This five year project, commenced in January 2012, is the first step in building comprehensive coastal information systems for Australia.
The SEQuITOR (South East Queensland Integrated Terrestrial to Oceans Research) project harnesses investments and innovations in observation networks (e.g. TERN, IMOS, ANDS, State agency, CSIRO) and integrated catchment and receiving environment modelling to develop data delivery, assimilation and visualisation infrastructure that will allow researchers and managers to better understand the strong, but often highly episodic (e.g. floods) connection between activities in the catchment and the effects on downstream coastal and marine aquatic water quality and ecosystem health.
The AODN Data Portal is a single access point for marine data published by Australian Commonwealth Agencies and by a large number of other data contributors. Generally, direct links from the Portal provide access to standardised data files that are hosted and maintained by the custodian agencies. The Portal incorporates a catalogue of metadata and a map interface that can be used to interact with AODN datasets.
