About Our Work in the Arctic //

NOAA’s National Environmental Satellite Data and Information Service provides access to over 30 years of ice and atmosphere properties from satellite data. Real-time satellite data are critical for accurate forecasting and warning of events, such as rapid sea ice formation and frequent storms that pose major hazards to life, property, and economic activities in the Arctic. Sea ice forecasts, primarily based on satellite and other data, are important for many stakeholders to operate in the marine environment, including the U.S. Coast Guard, Arctic coastal communities and Alaska Native populations, the oil and gas and fishing industries, first responders to emergencies, and scientific researchers. NOAA works to maintain real-time access to  national and international satellites to fill critical gaps in observations and integrates satellite data into regional products and scientific analyses.
