The Knowledge Base provides access to documents and information about the environmental effects of marine renewable energy, supporting the OES-Environmental initiative. Relevant documents from around the world are compiled into a user-friendly table that displays all content available in Tethys. Results can be narrowed using the keyword filters on the right, or with search terms entered in the text box. Content may also be sorted alphabetically by clicking on column headers. Some entries will appear on the next page.
As an alternative to the Knowledge Base, check out the Map Viewer to access geotagged content in a spatial view.
