Serving Multidisciplinary Marine Geoscience Data through the MGDS
The Marine Geoscience Data System (MGDS) provides access to a broad range of multi-disciplinary geoscience data from the global oceans collected under the NSF funded Ridge2000 and MARGINS programs, geophysical data from the Southern Ocean collected with the NB Palmer, and seismic reflection data from the R/V Conrad, Ewing and Langseth. The MGDS hosts a synthesis of global bathymetry data to its full resolution. The application GeoMapApp enables users to explore the bathymetry of the oceans, create custom grids and maps as well as dynamic interaction with a variety of other geological data. The MGDS is supported by the National Science Foundation. Read more about the system here or browse the MGDS site.
