Preparing for Disasters

Designed for decision makers, resource managers and environmental responders, the Great Lakes Environmental Response Management Application (ERMA) provides information to clean up hazardous materials and restore the coastal and estuarine environments.

ERMA includes environmental contaminant data, as well as information on natural resources, habitats, weather, water levels and currents. NOAA’s Office of Response and Restoration developed this mapping tool in collaboration with EPA, U.S. Coast Guard and University of New Hampshire.
