NOAA’s Arc

Nice video that explains just what the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration does.

YouTube – One NOAA – the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration

Thanks to my former classmate/shipmate Jamie Hutton, my son Luke and I had an opportunity to tour NOAA Ship Henry B. Bigelow, the Quietest Ship in the World, a couple years ago.

NOAA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, is the United States government’s oldest scientific agency, with roots stretching back to the early 1800s. In 1970 many smaller government agencies came together to form NOAA and today, NOAA’s work reaches from the bottom of the sea to the surface of the sun, and it touches every aspect of our daily lives. Among the many responsibilities of NOAA are the mandates to protect our coasts, forecast our weather, monitor our atmosphere, manage our fisheries, explore our ocean, chart our waterways, understand our climate, and conserve our maritime heritage.
