The Environmental Response Management Application® (ERMA) is a web-based Geographic Information System (GIS) tool that assists both emergency responders and environmental resource managers in dealing with incidents that may adversely impact the environment. ERMA integrates and synthesizes various real-time and static datasets into a single interactive map, thus provides fast visualization of the situation and improves communication and coordination among responders and environmental stakeholders. To find out more regarding how NOAA is preparing for potential Arctic spills please visit our National Ocean Service page.

This site was designed by NOAA's Office of Response and Restoration the University of New Hampshire and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The data sets contained within ERMA were identified by the local stakeholders and regional response community.
