Access is provided to near real-time and historical ocean observations, including water temperature, water levels, currents, winds, and waves, as well as other meteorological and water quality parameters and model outputs, including simulations of past conditions and forecasts. Measurement platforms range from in-situ to remote sensing.

Coastal and oceanographic data sets from 11 regional associations are included as part of this data. Regional associations cover areas from the head of the tide to the U.S. exclusive economic zone, as well as the Great Lakes.
