edit·history·watch·refresh Stock post message.svg To-do list for National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration:
  • Someone find or create a larger NWS logo and replace the one I (Ta bu shi da yu) have on this page! Done TomStar81 11/6/04
  • Find more links on the govt websites for the different divisions.
  • Create new articles for blank entries. I've been going to the U.S. govt websites directly and inputting the data they already have. A bit of NPOVing and you have a decent Wikpedia entry!
    • Entries for NOAA's Office of Oceangraphic and Atmospheric Research and its related subdivisions and affiliates have been creaetd. Most are stubs at this time but it gives a framework for OAR. Epolk June 28, 2005 22:43 (UTC)

problem with dates..[edit]

the article says the NOAA was started in the 1970's by the Honorable President Richard M. Nixon, but a picture right next to it shows meteorologists working for the NOAA in the "early 20th century".

Nixon restructured a whole bunch of departments and merged heaps into the NOAA. That picture is of the National Weather Service, probably back before the NWS took over the Department of Agriculture's Weather Bureau. - Ta bu shi da yu 07:49, 5 Jan 2005 (UTC)


IT SAYS THEY WERE WORKING FOR THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE, FOUNDED IN 1870, NOT THE NOAA. If you look at NOOAs home page they say 1807. I heard Thomas Jefferson started it but haven't found the source yet. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.193.81.46 (talk) 02:22, 24 January 2009 (UTC)


found it NOAA, an agency of the U.S. Commerce Department, is celebrating 200 years of science and service to the nation. From the establishment of the Survey of the Coast in 1807 by Thomas Jefferson to the formation of the Weather Bureau and the Commission of Fish and Fisheries in the 1870s, much of America's scientific heritage is rooted in NOAA. NOAA is dedicated to enhancing economic security and national safety through the prediction and research of weather and climate-related events and information service delivery for transportation, and by providing environmental stewardship of the nation's coastal and marine resources. Through the emerging Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS), NOAA is working with its federal partners, more than 60 countries and the European Commission to develop a global monitoring network that is as integrated as the planet it observes, predicts and protects.

Separate NOAA divisions from main NOAA page[edit]

Is there any objection to separating the NOAA divisions (for example: NWS and NESDIS) into their own Wikipedia entries and linking to them from the NOAA entry? If we add all of NOAA's divisions onto this one page, it is going to get really crowded. It also appears that NWS and NESDIS have enough info to be the start of a credible entry on their own. NMFS, OAR and NURP need a little more work to be more than stubs but they should warrant their own pages soon enough. Epolk 15:38, Jun 21, 2005 (UTC)

I have no objection to that - it makes sense to me. ottergoose 18:55, Jun 22, 2005 (UTC)

Budget(s)?[edit]

Some mention of the annual budget figures related to NOAA would be useful. Allenc28

I read on think progress that they were spending $4Mil on their PR campaign but they just cut 700K from hurricane research--68.199.89.41 02:15, 18 May 2007 (UTC)

miami wikiproject[edit]

For some reason this article was labeled as part of Miami wikiproject. While NOAA is important to us here in South Florida, so is the Post Office, the IRS, and the Air Force. None of them should be a part of Miami wikiproject. GroveGuy (talk) 02:42, 15 May 2011 (UTC)

how about adding some critique section?[edit]
