    The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's work spans from the bottom of the sea to the surface of the sun. Each day, our employees take the pulse of the changing world around us and share that knowledge with others to ensure public safety, protect and restore marine resources, and strengthen our economy. We are scientists, engineers, researchers, technicians, and more who remain united in our common mission: science, service, stewardship.

    Narrator: NOAA’s work spans from the bottom of the sea to the surface of the sun. Each day, our employees take the pulse of the changing world around us and share that knowledge with others to ensure public safety, protect and restore marine resources, and strengthen our economy.

    Our people are as diverse as our mission. We are scientists, engineers, researchers, technicians, and more, who live the mission every day. We are also the staff who supports the mission behind the scenes.

    Survey Technician Allison Stone: “What I love about my job is that every day we get to see things that nobody has seen before or in ways that nobody has seen it before.”

    Narrator: NOAA’s roots reach back more than 200 years. These agencies helped build the foundation of today’s NOAA.

    Program Manager Derek Deroche: “You know, we constantly find new and creative, innovative ways to get our message of life-saving information to the public.”

    Narrator: Science is the foundation for all we do as we conduct world-class research and use cutting-edge technology to explore our seas, forecast our weather, understand our climate, protect our coasts, manage our fisheries, and chart our waterways.

    Chief Engineer Kevin Sorbello: “It's the intangibles that matter more than anything else. It's not the paycheck; it's not the steady employment. It really is the science. You have a chance to be part of something bigger than just a commercial organization. And that's what NOAA is about."

    Narrator: Our work touches the lives of every American and powers the economy as we work in collaboration with our partners to transform our data and research into real-world applications that inform critical decision-making, and protect the people, systems, and services essential to our nation.

    NOAA Corps LCDR Adrienne Hopper: “I love the mission, I love the work that we do, the people that are involved in this organization.”

    Narrator: We are united in our common mission: science, service, stewardship.
