Our Research

Our research encompasses ocean, coastal, and atmospheric studies to ready the nation for changes driven by weather, climate, and pressures on marine ecosystems. We work to improve hurricane forecast prediction, learn how the ocean affects extreme weather events, measure the impacts of ocean acidification, and gauge impacts of microbial contamination on human health. We lead international efforts to collect and interpret global observations from ships, satellites, aircraft, buoys, and floats.
