Pushing the boundaries of research at NOAA in the ocean

Part two of a two-part series on innovative and emerging projects supported by NOAA Oceanic and Atmospheric Research

Taking risks is a necessary part of advancing science. NOAA recognizes the need to invest in these emerging research areas and recently supported several inventive and high-risk projects. Two projects supported by OAR seek to improve NOAA’s fisheries management through global climate prediction systems and enhance how scientists measure ocean chemistry at great depths.

Since Katrina: A decade of NOAA hurricane research

Advancing hurricane forecasting, improving models, and increasing observations

A decade ago, the United States experienced one of the most active and destructive hurricane seasons ever recorded. The loss of life and destruction of property from Hurricanes Katrina (Aug. 29), Rita (Sept. 24), and Wilma (Oct. 24) drove NOAA to re-evaluate hurricane research and severe storm preparedness.

Florida's Fragile Oasis

Surrounded by ocean moisture, Florida is an oasis sitting right in the middle of the desert belt, which traverses the subtropical latitudes north and south of the equator. But even oases sometimes go dry.

Drifting Buoys Track Water Currents in the Great Lakes Straits of Mackinac

When you’re watching a river or the waves on a lake, do you ever wonder where that water goes? If you threw a rubber ducky into the water, where would it end up? Scientists are studying the movement of water in the Straits of Mackinac, which connect Lake Michigan and Lake Huron, to figure out how the water moves around. This water movement can affect ship traffic, how pollution spreads, and where aquatic animals go.
