Launching uncrewed systems to monitor climate and ecosystem changes in the U.S. Arctic, sequencing the genome for endangered marine species, and improving weather forecasts with advances in regional models — these are just a few of NOAA’s scientific achievements in 2020. The newly released NOAA Science Report highlights the ways these accomplishments — and many more — provide the foundation for vital services that Americans use every day.
The report, which is broken into four sections, celebrates NOAA’s vital ocean, weather, water, and climate research, and how it works to protect lives and property, support a vibrant economy, and strengthen national security.
