POPS is a low-cost, high-sensitivity alternative to traditional aerosol measurement technologies.
“I wanted to do something related to the environment,” Naik said. “It became clear to me during my studies that pollutants are not just harmful for human health, but they also impact the climate.”
Data-driven tools will help communities accelerate equitable resilience.
If the preliminary results are correct, they mean that the heat wave would have been at least 150 times rarer before global warming.
Chicago regional plan aims for 80 percent reduction by 2050.
Protecting and exploring our global ocean is a huge job: It covers more than 70 percent of Earth’s surface. Cutting-edge technologies help us dive deeper, gather more ocean data and solve some of its biggest challenges.
NOAA Ocean Exploration's operations on Okeanos Explorer are back in full swing - which means live-streaming from the sea floor is back!
For World Ocean Month, here are four ways NOAA is tracking ocean health and our changing climate.
Developed through a partnership with NOAA Ocean Exploration, Ocean Exploration Trust, and Schmidt Ocean Institute, the Deep Ocean Education Project website features student activities, stories from the field and more.
Keeping track of ocean health is critical for understanding climate change, weather patterns, and the health of important fisheries. But how do NOAA and partner scientists gather data on such a vast environment?
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.
