Welcome to the Climate Data Portal for the newly-formed NOAA Mid-Atlantic Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments (MARISA) team! MARISA is just getting started, so you won't find much here yet. Over the coming months, though, we'll be populating this site with datasets and tools developed by members of the MARISA team as well as links to and guidance on other resources relevant to the Chesapeake Bay Watershed and Mid-Atlantic region.

The MARISA Climate Data Office and this portal are hosted at Penn State University under the direction of Dr. Robert Nicholas. For more information, questions, data requests, or suggestions of resources you'd like to see on this site, contact Dr. Nicholas at rob.nicholas@psu.edu.

General questions regarding MARISA should be directed to Project Manager Krista Romita Grocholski (kristarg@rand.org).
