Title: NOAA’s Wage Marine Job Opportunities


1
NOAAs Wage Marine Job Opportunities
  • Office of Marine and Aviation Operations National
    Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration

About NOAA
  • NOAAs mission is to understand and predict
    changes in Earths environment and conserve and
    manage coastal and marine resources to meet our
    Nations economic, social and environmental
    needs.
  • NOAA is an agency that enriches life through
    science. Our reach goes from the surface of the
    sun to the depths of the ocean floor as we work
    to keep citizens informed of the changing
    environment around them.
  • From daily weather forecasts, severe storm
    warnings and climate monitoring to fisheries
    management, coastal restoration and supporting
    marine commerce, NOAAs products and services
    support economic vitality and affect more than
    one-third of Americas gross domestic product.
    NOAAs dedicated scientists use cutting-edge
    research and high-tech instrumentation to provide
    citizens, planners, emergency managers and other
    decision makers with reliable information they
    need when they need it.
  • NOAA's roots date back to 1807, when the Nations
    first scientific agency, the Survey of the Coast,
    was established. Since then, NOAA has evolved to
    meet the needs of a changing country. NOAA
    maintains a presence in every state and has
    emerged as an international leader on scientific
    and environmental matters. 
  • NOAAs mission touches the lives of every
    American and we are proud of our role in
    protecting life and property and conserving and
    protecting natural resources.
  • -- Dr. Jane Lubchenco, Administrator of NOAA and
    Under Secretary of Commerce

About NOAAs Office of Marine and Aviation
Operations (OMAO) and Marine Operations Center
  • OMAOs Mission is to safely and efficiently
    operate NOAA ships and aircraft, incorporate
    emerging data acquisition technologies, and
    provide a specialized professional team
    responsive to NOAA programs.
  • OMAO operates a wide variety of specialized
    aircraft and ships to complete NOAA's
    environmental and scientific missions. OMAO is
    also responsible for the administration and
    implementation of the NOAA Diving Program, Small
    Boat Program and Aviation Safety Program, to
    ensure safe and efficient operations in
    NOAA-sponsored underwater activities and aviation
    and small boat operations.
  • NOAA's ship fleet provides hydrographic survey,
    oceanographic and atmospheric research, and
    fisheries research vessels to support NOAA's
    strategic plan elements and mission. The vessels
    are located in various locations around the
    United States. The ships are managed by the
    Marine Operations Center.
  • NOAA's aircraft and ship fleet is operated and
    managed by a combination of NOAA Corps Officers,
    wage marine and civilian employees.
