Here at NOAA Research (the Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research, or OAR) our work takes us from the surface of the sun to the depths of the ocean. Our scientists and their university partners across the country and elsewhere work to better understand the world in which we live. NOAA Research is where much of the work is done that results in better weather forecasts, longer warning lead times for natural disasters, new products from the sea, and a greater understanding of our climate, atmosphere, and oceans. NOAA research is done not only in what many would consider traditional laboratories, but also aboard ships, aloft in planes, and beneath the sea in the world's only undersea habitat. Our tools can be as high-tech as supercomputers or as basic as rain gauges. While we try to answer some of nature's questions, we also never lose sight of how our work will benefit the American public.
