National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
NOAA is a United States federal agency focused on the condition of the oceans and the atmosphere. It plays several distinct roles within the Department of Commerce:
A Supplier of Environmental Information Products. One of the most important resources in our society is information. NOAA supplies information to its customers that pertains to the state of the oceans and the atmosphere. This is clearly manifest in the production of weather warnings and forecasts through the National Weather Service, but NOAA’s information products extend to climate, ecosystems and commerce as well.
A Provider of Environmental Stewardship Services. NOAA also is the steward of national coastal and marine environments. In coordination with federal, state, local, tribal and international authorities, NOAA manages the use of these environments, regulating fisheries and marine sanctuaries as well as protecting threatened and endangered marine species.
