321 NOAA Commissioned Corps (2018)
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA; pronounced /ˈnoʊ.ə/, like “Noah”) is an American scientific agency within the United States Department of Commerce that focuses on the conditions of the oceans and the atmosphere.
NOAA warns of dangerous weather, charts seas, guides the use and protection of ocean and coastal resources and conducts research to provide understanding and improve stewardship of the environment.
NOAA was officially formed in 1970 and in 2017 had over 11,000 civilian employees, its research and operations further supported by 321 uniformed service members who make up the NOAA Commissioned Corps.
Since October 2017, NOAA has been headed by Timothy Gallaudet as acting Under Secretary of Commerce for Oceans and Atmosphere and NOAA interim administrator.
NOAA plays several specific roles in society, the benefits of which extend beyond the US economy and into the larger global community:
Random information on the term “SEA”:
A sea is a large body of salt water that is surrounded in whole or in part by land.[a] More broadly, “the sea” is the interconnected system of Earth’s salty, oceanic waters—considered as one global ocean or as several principal oceanic divisions. The sea moderates Earth’s climate and has important roles in the water cycle, carbon cycle, and nitrogen cycle. Although the sea has been traveled and explored since prehistory, the modern scientific study of the sea—oceanography—dates broadly to the British Challenger expedition of the 1870s. The sea is conventionally divided into up to five large oceanic sections—including the International Hydrographic Organization’s four named oceans (the Atlantic, Pacific, Indian, and Arctic) and the Southern Ocean; smaller, second-order sections, such as the Mediterranean, are known as seas.
Owing to the present state of continental drift, the Northern Hemisphere is now fairly equally divided between land and sea (a ratio of about 2:3) but the South is overwhelmingly oceanic (1:4.7). Salinity in the open ocean is generally in a narrow band around 3.5% by mass, although this can vary in more landlocked waters, near the mouths of large rivers, or at great depths. About 85% of the solids in the open sea are sodium chloride. Deep-sea currents are produced by differences in salinity and temperature. Surface currents are formed by the friction of waves produced by the wind and by tides, the changes in local sea level produced by the gravity of the Moon and Sun. The direction of all of these is governed by surface and submarine land masses and by the rotation of the Earth (the Coriolis effect).
