NOAA is an agency that enriches life through science. Our reach goes from the surface of the sun to the depths of the ocean floor as we work to keep citizens informed of the changing environment around them.
From daily weather forecasts, severe storm warnings, and climate monitoring to fisheries management, coastal restoration and supporting marine commerce, NOAA’s products and services support economic vitality and affect more than one-third of America’s gross domestic product. NOAA’s dedicated scientists use cutting-edge research and high-tech instrumentation to provide citizens, planners, emergency managers and other decision makers with reliable information they need when they need it.
NOAA's mission is to understand and predict changes in climate, weather, the ocean, and coasts, to share that knowledge and information with others, and to conserve and manage coastal and marine ecosystems and resources.
Celebrate the earth’s Ocean with a trifecta of science and exploration. Join exploration research vessels connecting live for the second annual World Ocean Day Hangout. Ocean Exploration Trust’s E/V Nautlius will be in the Pacific Ocean exploring Canadian waters with Ocean Networks Canada (ONC) and Schmidt Ocean Institute's R/V Falkor will be completing sea trials in the Pacific just off the coast of Oregon. We will also be joined by NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer.
