OBIS Search Interface v3.0

This interface lets you search seamlessly through all datasets that were contributed to OBIS, with criteria based on taxonomy, spatial and temporal extent, or physical/chemical oceanographic environmental conditions. For more information on OBIS check Home page.
For technical details go to About OBIS > Technology.

The Search Interface was made possible thanks to the contributions from Marine Geospatial Ecology Lab of Duke University, Durham, North Carolina, USA; from Instituto de Tecnología y Ciencias Marinas of Universidad Simón Bolívar, Caracas,Venezuela; from Rutgers University Institute of Marine and Coastal Sciences, New Brunswick, New Jersey, USA; and from OpenGeo.
The contribution each of these partners made is described in the Technology pages.

Your opinion is important; please use the 'feedback' button in the search interface or the 'Contact' tab of the main menu to help us improve OBIS data and web site.
