Pushing the boundaries of research at NOAA in the ocean

Pushing the boundaries of research at NOAA in the ocean

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

Since Katrina: A decade of NOAA hurricane research

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.

Never Missing an Opportunity, Ship of Opportunity That Is, to Collect Carbon Dioxide Data

Never Missing an Opportunity, Ship of Opportunity That Is, to Collect Carbon Dioxide Data

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the words carbon dioxide? Is it the ocean? In this day and age, it should be. The ocean absorbs about one fourth of the extra carbon dioxide in the air that is released through human activity, according to a researcher at Scripps Institution of Oceanography.
