NOAA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, is the United States government's oldest scientific agency, with roots stretching back to the early 1800s. In 1970 many smaller government agencies came together to form NOAA and today, NOAA's work reaches from the bottom of the sea to the surface of the sun, and it touches every aspect of our daily lives. Among the many responsibilities of NOAA are the mandates to protect our coasts, forecast our weather, monitor our atmosphere, manage our fisheries, explore our ocean, chart our waterways, understand our climate, and conserve our maritime heritage.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's work spans from the bottom of the sea to the surface of the sun. Each day, our employees take the pulse of the changing world around us and share that knowledge with others to ensure public safety, protect and restore marine resources, and strengthen our economy. We are scientists, engineers, researchers, technicians, and more who remain united in our common mission: science, service, stewardship. Transcript: Narrator: NOAA’s work spans from the bottom of the sea to the surface of the sun. Each day, our employees take the pulse of the changing world around us and share that knowledge with others to ensure public safety, protect and restore marine resources, and strengthen our economy. Our people are as diverse as our mission. We a...

It was recorded on the eastern equatorial Pacific, using an autonomous hydrophone array. Heard for many thousands of kilometres, the source of the sound has been largely dismissed as an iceberg running aground somewhere off of Antarctica, it’s the point of origin being somewhere between Bransfield Straits and Cape Adare. What gave this story a rather chilling twist however, is a classified image which later surfaced, a classified image later redacted, taken by a NASA satellite, which shows something with an enormous shadow, within the waters of Cape Adare at the time, which if con...

A National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration ( NOAA ) Lockheed WP-3D Orion nicknamed " Kermit the Frog " ( N42RF ) takes off from Gander International Airport ( CYQX ) during the sunset for Halifax Stanfield International Airport ( CYHZ ). The Lockheed WP-3D Orion is a heavily modified P-3 Orion, only 2 exist, they are used to collect information about weather and are known as Hurricane Hunters.
This video demonstrates how warm water in the central Pacific can influence prevailing pressure and precipitation patterns across the ocean basin. These atmospheric disturbances influence the average position of the Jet Stream. In turn, the jet alters temperature and precipitation patterns in the United States.

The launch of a new polar-orbiting environmental satellite enables NOAA to continue issuing accurate forecasts and provide advance warning for severe weather, such as deadly tornado outbreaks, blistering heat waves, floods, snowfall and wildfires.
Scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) have DEMOLISHED claims by global warming activists that global warming caused or worsened many extreme weather events last year. According to NOAA’s new publication, Explaining Extremes of 2013 from a Climate Perspective, there is no discernible connection between global warming and 2013 extreme weather events such as the California drought, Colorado floods, the UK’s exceptionally cold spring, a South Dakota blizzard, Central Europe floods, a northwestern Europe cyclone, and exceptional snowfall in Europe’s Pyrenees Mountains. The California drought provides a good example of global warming activists making false and irresponsible claims regarding global warming to deliberately mislead people who aren’t familiar with ...

Liberty Science Center's newest installation is Science on a Sphere, a six-foot suspended globe developed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) that displays the Earth's four quadrants in 3D and enables visitors to experience atmospheric events on Earth as well as on other planets and moons in our solar system, many of them in real time.
From March to April 2012, a team of scientists and technicians both at-sea and on shore conducted exploratory investigations on the diversity and distribution of deep-sea habitats and marine life in the northern Gulf of Mexico. This video footage was captured by the Little Hercules remotely operated vehicle (ROV) and Seirios Camera Sled platform during the April 3, 2012, ROV dive.

"NOAA's Office of Coastal Management is the nation’s coastal management agency. “Coastal management” is a term that covers the decisions and actions taken to keep the natural environment, built environment, quality of life, and economic prosperity of our coastal areas in balance. The Coastal Zone Management Act is the guiding legislation for this purpose, and NOAA’s Office for Coastal Management is the federal agency tasked with implementation. Coastal management issues are broad and challenging. Communities and the nation are constantly grappling with the best ways to address storm preparedness, erosion, development, habitat loss, sea level rise, public access, and threats to water quality, to name a few. As a scientific organization, NOAA provides access to the science and environmental...
