Tool: Bering Strait Response Teaching Tool

Defenders of Wildlife produced a web mapping portal that aggregates data from ocean waters in Norton Sound, the Bering Strait, and Kotzebue Sound. The Bering Strait Response Teaching Tool (BSRTT) includes a Data Layer Catalog, Interactive Ocean Portal and Oil Spill Scenarios. The Data Layer Catalog provides a library of historical and real-time information for the Bering Strait region including weather, sea ice, ship routes, infrastructure and spill response resources. The Interactive Ocean Portal is an interactive map that displays data in and around the Bering Strait. The BSRTT uses the catalogued data and interactive map to produce a series of oil spill scenarios that show the impacts that possible spills could have in the region through visualizations and descriptions.
