2021 NOAA Science Report

The NOAA Science Report is an annual report that highlights NOAA’s research and development achievements across all Line Organizations over the past year.

In 2021, the scientific highlights, awards, bibliometrics, and educational spotlights demonstrate NOAA’s commitment to advancing the opportunities for both ocean prosperity and protection with the new blue economy, the importance of sound climate science to inform society, and Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility (DEIA).

The science highlights captured in this annual report are organized by the agency’s strategy: NOAA Research and Development Vision Areas: 2020-2026 and categorized in a way that connects the science to societal outcomes.
