Bering Climate, a new site from the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, offers a wealth of data for researchers studying the ecosystems and climate of the Bering Sea and how they might respond to global warming. Such questions are particularly important because the sea supplies half of the seafood eaten in the United States. Visitors can trawl more than 40 data sets on ice cover, winter surface temperatures, salmon catches, and other measurements. You can download the data, plot them, or check for correlations between data sets. A photo gallery lets you meet some of the sea's denizens and a plethora of links summons other sources of information.
