NATIONAL OCEANIC AND ATMOSPHERIC ADMINISTRATION
- To understand and predict changes in the Earth’s environment and conserve and manage coastal and marine resources to meet our nation’s economic, social and environmental needs
Ways in which NOAA, a Federal Agency within the Department of Commerce, achieves its mission:
A Supplier of Environmental Information Products:
One of the most important resources in our society is information. NOAA supplies information to its customers that pertains to the state of the oceans and the atmosphere. This is clearly manifest in the production of weather warnings and forecasts through the National Weather Service, but NOAA’s information products extend to climate, ecosystems and commerce as well.
A Provider of Environmental Stewardship Services:
NOAA also is the steward of national coastal and marine environments. In coordination with federal, state, local, tribal and international authorities, NOAA manages the use of these environments, regulating fisheries/marine sanctuaries as well as protecting threatened/endangered marine species.
A Leader in Applied Scientific Research:
NOAA is a trusted
source of accurate and objective scientific information in four
particular areas of national and global importance:
Climate: Understand changes in climate, including the El Niño phenomenon, to ensure that we can plan and respond properly.
Weather & Water: Provide data and forecasts for weather and water cycle events, including storms, droughts and floods.
