Simons CMAP is an open-source data portal designed for retrieving, visualizing, and analyzing diverse ocean datasets including research cruise-based and autonomous measurements of biological, chemical and physical properties, multi-decadal global satellite products, and output from global-scale biogeochemical models. It enables scientists and the public to dive into the vast, and often underutilized, ocean datasets and to view and retrieve customized subsets of these massive datasets without going through the time-consuming process of finding and harmonizing data from different sources.
