NOAA’s diverse functions require an equally diverse set of skills and constantly evolving abilities in its workforce. NOAA’s vision centers on a holistic understanding of the interdependencies between human health and prosperity. Across the United States, Cooperative Institutes' research projects are supporting NOAA’s research goals and enterprise objectives. These projects help anticipate and respond to climate and its impacts, prepare for and respond to weather-related events, develop sustainable marine fisheries, habitats within healthy and productive ecosystems, and improve coastal and Great Lakes communities that are environmentally and economically sustainable.
