Research is the research arm of NOAA and is a government leader in environmental science. It does research needed to improve weather forecasts, sustain ocean resources and control pollution, and watch for global weather and space weather changes.
Universities are important partners with
NOAA Research, and together they do research in aquaculture, water pollution prevention, and seafood quality. This helps us to farm the oceans while keeping them healthy.
With its diverse research "tool kit" and top quality scientists,
NOAA Research provides national and international leadership on critical environmental issues. For example,
NOAA Research scientists were advising the U.S. delegation at the Kyoto Protocol on Global Warming and climate change.
NOAA Research makes valuable contributions to the health, economy, and policy decisions of the U.S.
