There's a lot going on at NOAA's National Ocean Service.
October 23, 2022, marks the 50th anniversary of NOAA’s National Marine Sanctuary System. It’s a milestone in NOAA’s mission to conserve and protect some of the nation's most treasured wildlife, seascapes, maritime heritage, and cultural resources.
This month, NOS celebrates the 50th anniversary of four major pieces of environmental legislation: the National Marine Sanctuaries Act, Coastal Zone Management Act, Marine Mammal Protection Act, and the Clean Water Act. These historic laws provide a foundation for the nation’s ocean and coastal conservation efforts and shape how many Americans view the environment.
From September 29 - October 3, the National Geodetic Survey (NGS) collected aerial damage assessment images in the aftermath of Hurricane Ian. Imagery was collected in specific areas by NOAA aircraft, identified by NOAA in coordination with FEMA and other state and federal partners.
The U.S. government aims to deploy 30 gigawatts of wind energy production in federal waters by 2030. The National Ocean Service (NOS) is helping the nation achieve this goal.
NOAA’s National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS) is announcing $11M in Fiscal Year 2022 to fund 18 coastal resilience research projects across the nation.
