Two lawmakers from Maine want to know what the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is doing to address trouble in the Atlantic scallop fishing industry. U.S. Sen. Angus King, an … Click to Continue »
Researchers from the Maryland-based National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) found global temperatures in February were 0.98°C (1.76°F) above the 20th-century average.
With the current administration attempting to torpedo NOAA’s incredible SeaGrant program, I’ve gotten into a reflective mood. One could highlight the tremendous return on investment of SeaGrant – 750% for every dollar spent. Or the thousands of people who have been employed (jobs!) off of SeaGrant. Or the reams and reams of awesome ocean science, […]

An interesting discussion is playing out on NOAA Coral List regarding how we define “internships.” This got started after the Roatan Institute for Marine Science (RIMS) advertised their 4-week, $3000 (travel not included), summer “internship.” That sparked a lot push back from Coral Listers who complained (and I agree) that something a student PAYS for […]

As a winter storm prepares to wallop the East Coast tonight and tomorrow (March 13 and 14), NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) are keeping a close eye on the region with multiple satellites.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA and NOAA satellites are providing various views of the major winter storm marching toward the US East coast on March 13. The storm is forecast to merge with another system and is expected to bring large snowfall totals from the Mid-Atlantic to New England.
The winter storm was tracked by NOAA’s GOES-16 satellite. It captured the storm in visible, infrared, and colorized Infrared spectrums. It also delivered water vapor imagery of the storm.
Carbon dioxide levels measured at NOAA's Mauna Loa Baseline Atmospheric Observatory rose by three parts per million to 405.1 parts per million (ppm) in 2016, an increase that matched the record jump observed in 2015.
NOAA's Sea Grant prepares the country for rising seas and other threats.
