On Wednesday, May 5, at 7 p.m. EDT/4 p.m. PDT, join explorers from an upcoming NOAA Ocean Exploration expedition to hear about innovative technologies NOAA and its partners are developing to advance exploration. Learn how the navigation technology used on NASA’s Mars 2020 Perseverance rover and Ingenuity Mars helicopter is being adapted for use on an autonomous underwater vehicle in Earth’s deep ocean and how environmental DNA can be used to learn more about the animals that live there.
NOAA scientists can get a lot done in a year. That’s one big takeaway from the 2020 NOAA Science Report, which outlines our agency’s key scientific accomplishments from 2020.
Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (OAR) - or "NOAA Research" - provides the research foundation for understanding the complex systems that support our planet. Working in partnership with other organizational units of the NOAA, a bureau of the Department of Commerce, NOAA Research enables better forecasts, earlier warnings for natural disasters, and a greater understanding of the Earth. Our role is to provide unbiased science to better manage the environment, nationally, and globally.
