This dataset contains GIS data (raster and shapefiles) for the local threats to coral reefs: coastal development, integrated local, marine pollution, overfishing, and watershed pollution.

Zip file containing NetCDF files for both zonal and meridional current velocities (meters/second) for 5 day temporal resolution for the years 2000-2019 in the WGS84 coordinate system (EPSG:4326).

This dataset contains rasters and a metadata file for global mean monthly sea surface temperature (°C) from 2010-2019. Rasters are in WGS84 coordinate system (EPSG 4326). Sea surface temperature is the temperature of the top millimeter of the ocean's surface. Sea surface temperatures influence weather, including hurricanes, as well as plant and animal life in the ocean. Like Earth's land surface, sea surface temperatures are warmer near the equator and colder near the poles. Currents like giant rivers move warm and cold water around the world's oceans.

This dataset contains rasters and a metadata file for global mean monthly ocean chlorophyll concentration (mg/m3) from 2010-2019. Rasters are in WGS84 coordinate system (EPSG 4326) . Chlorophyll-a is the light-harvesting pigment found in all photosynthetic plants. Its concentration in the ocean is used as an index of phytoplankton biomass and, as such, is a key input to primary productivity models.

Resource contains raster files for a Digital Elevation Model (DEM) and derived hillshade for Papua New Guinea.

The ASTER Global Digital Elevation Model (GDEM) Version 3 (ASTGTM) provides a global digital elevation model (DEM) of land areas on Earth at a spatial resolution of 1 arc second (approximately 30 meter horizontal posting at the equator).

This resource contains 30-meter resolution satellite imagery for Papua New Guinea. The imagery was collected during the years 2018-2020 from the Landsat-8 satellite. Images were selected for their visibility, however there is cloud cover present in the final images due to the size of Papua New Guinea and availability of datasets. This imagery should be used for guidance only and cited as "Landsat-8 image courtesy of the U.S. Geological Survey" if used in any presentations or other work.

Map of the protected areas for Papua New Guinea with country-level summary statistics on the amount of area under protection, count for each type of protected area (terrestrial or marine), and the count of their designation.

Map of the protected areas for the northeast provinces of Papua New Guinea with country-level summary statistics on the amount of area under protection, count for each type of protected area (terrestrial or marine), and the count of their designation.

Map of the protected areas for the northwest provinces of Papua New Guinea with country-level summary statistics on the amount of area under protection, count for each type of protected area (terrestrial or marine), and the count of their designation.
