Robot Sailboats Scour the Oceans for Data

Robot Sailboats Scour the Oceans for Data

Last summer, working with scientists and engineers from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the boats skimmed along the edge of the retreating Arctic ice cap, giving scientists a detailed account of temperature, salinity and ecosystem information that would have been difficult and expensive to obtain in person.

NOAA Announces Novel Feeder for Juvenile and Larval Fishes

NOAA Announces Novel Feeder for Juvenile and Larval Fishes

NOAA Fisheries researchers have developed a fish feeder that allows fish farmers to automatically feed young fish on a recurrent basis while protecting the feed from oxidation and clumping. The patent-pending Microparticulate Feeder for Larval and Juvenile Fish was developed at NOAA’s Northwest Fisheries Science Center in Seattle, Washington and is now available for licensing by a qualified U.S. company.

NOAA Researchers and Partners Document Rise in Great Lakes Water Levels

NOAA Researchers and Partners Document Rise in Great Lakes Water Levels

Levels expected to stay above-average through winter and spring of 2015

Scientists at the Army Corps of Engineers, Environment Canada, and NOAA recently documented a record-setting surge in water levels on Lakes Superior and Michigan-Huron that began in January 2013, and has continued through November 2014. The United States and Canadian federal agencies expect water levels to stay near or above average on all of the Great Lakes over the next six months.

NOAA's investments in weather models and partnerships paying off

NOAA's investments in weather models and partnerships paying off

As the Northeast digs out from this week’s blizzard, a new NOAA-led effort to improve the forecasting of such high impact weather events is reaching an important early benchmark. One of the first major improvements - upgrading the resolution of three global forecast models -- has already shown its effectiveness. One of these models, the newly upgraded Global Forecast System (GFS) model, provided one of the most precise forecasts of the track, intensity, precipitation, and distribution of the Nor’easter. The other research models provided important forecast information, as well.

New technology uses NOAA data to provide faster disaster warnings

New technology uses NOAA data to provide faster disaster warnings

Mayday.ai applies artificial intelligence to NOAA satellite imagery to detect natural disasters, starting with wildfires

In 2017, as Kian Mirshahi watched wildfires rage across his home state of California, he wondered if there might be a way to get real-time information to first responders and citizens to help coordinate actions on the ground. More specifically, he wondered if Artificial Intelligence, or AI, might provide a key to faster decision-making. Fortunately, NOAA had recently rolled out two major developments, which provided the fuel for Mirshahi’s innovative drive.

Northeast Fisheries Science Center Working to Monitor Spawning Activity in Massachusetts Bay


This latest deployment is one of several research efforts undertaken in a collaborative multi-year program to study the reproductive behavior of Atlantic cod in the wild.  For several years, researchers from the passive acoustics group at NOAA’s Northeast Fisheries Science Center (NEFSC) have been working with Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary (SBNMS), the Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries (DMF), the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth School for Marine Science and Technology (SMAST), and local fishermen. The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) and The Nature Conservancy (TNC) joined the group in this latest study.
