The National Ocean Service
The National Ocean Service (NOS), a part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), is the nation's principle advocate for coastal and ocean stewardship. NOS develops the national foundation for coastal and ocean science, management, response, restoration, and navigation. The website includes descriptions of and links to the various program and staff offices which comprise NOS, as well as links to mapping sites, volunteer opportunities, tidal and current information. The education and outreach section offers an inventory of materials developed by NOS, including CD-ROMs, lesson plans, posters, and videos.
