Nine new postdoctoral fellows are commencing cutting-edge research projects that will contribute innovative climate science to the research community as well as NOAA's mission.
The West Coast continental shelf is known to host methane bubble streams, formerly thought to be rare. Now, a new discovery sheds light on the extent and distribution of seafloor methane seeps.
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.
NOAA’s recently-patented lionfish trap could be a solution that offers both ecological and commercial benefits.
Scientists hope images from the research drones will improve our understanding of tornadoes and lead to better forecasts.
From warmer ocean temperatures to longer and more intense droughts and heat waves, climate change is affecting our entire planet. Scientists at NOAA have long worked to track, understand and predict how climate change is progressing and impacting ecosystems, communities and economies.
Sea Grant and its research partners has announced two updates on efforts to better understand red snapper populations in U.S. coastal waters.
Government interventions, such as mask mandates and school closures, rather than meteorological factors appear to have primarily influenced COVID-19’s spread in 2020 and early 2021, according to a new report.
For Sea Grant, resilience is more than a buzzword. Sea Grant is involved in every aspect of climate resilience planning, from start to finish.
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.
