National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Research, conducted primarily through the NOAA Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research, drives the NOAA environmental products and services that protect life and property and promote sustainable economic growth. Research, conducted by in-house laboratories and by extramural programs, focuses on enhancing understanding of the environmental phenomena such as tornadoes, hurricanes, climate variability, solar flares, changes in the ozone, El Nino/La Nina events, fisheries productivity, ocean currents, deep sea thermal vents, and coastal ecosystem health. NOAA research also develops innovative technologies and observing systems. This clearinghouse website contains an explanation of various types of research conducted by NOAA. Users can access hot research topics, NOAA products and research organizations. This site also contains image galleries and photo albums chronicling NOAA research.
