UN Atlas of the Oceans

Traditionally, an atlas was a bound collection of maps, charts, plates and tables illustrating a subject. The UN Atlas of the Oceans is an on-line, encyclopedic survey of the best ocean information available. The project is a partnership of six UN Agencies and other public and private partners, including the World Ocean Observatory. The Atlas is the most comprehensive on-line resource for inquiry about the full spectrum of ocean issues; it is an essential tool for students, teachers, and others interested in detailed information about ocean systems and services.
