NOAA’s Role in Climate

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration

Half of the carbon emissions captured are stored more than 400 m deep, and one-quarter of them are stored more than 1000 m deep.

How the ocean can help us take CO2 out of the atmosphere and store it safely in the ocean?

About NOAA

Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (OAR)—or “NOAA Research”— provides the research foundation for understanding the complex systems that support our planet. Working in partnership with other organizational units of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, a bureau of the Department of Commerce, NOAA Research enables better forecasts, earlier warnings for natural disasters, and a greater understanding of the Earth. Our role is to provide unbiased science to better manage the environment, nationally, and globally. Working under the broad themes of Climate, Weather and Air Quality, and Ocean and Coastal Resources, NOAA scientists study the ocean’s depths and the highest reaches of space to better understand our environment.

Our action for climate change

NOAA provides science for a climate-smart nation and better management of climate-related risks. From supercomputers and state-of-the-art models to observations and outlooks, we provide data, tools, and information to help people understand and prepare for climate variability and change.
