The home page was redesigned in April 2003 to help you, the user, find information quickly. We have broken up information using what we call “theme” pages. These are broad categories where it is hoped you will find the subject matter you seek with the fewest clicks possible. For example, the weather theme page is a comprehensive listing of the work that NOAA does on weather. It is by no means a complete list. For more specific weather information, it is best to visit the respective links.
We hope you find your surfing experience at NOAA informative as well as enjoyable.
The NOAA home page is managed by the Office of Public Affairs in Washington, D.C.
