Western Region

NOAA in the Western Region

The Western collaboration region is the largest in terms of geography, number of employees, and NOAA facilities.  The region is home to 4,786 federal and non-federal NOAA staffs distributed across 92 cities in the West, and represents over 21% of the total agency workforce.

Employees in the region represent the full diversity of NOAA’s technical and scientific expertise.  The Agency’s capabilities in the region are strengthened through an extensive partnership network that is tuned to priority regional issues, collects data and information, conducts cutting edge research and science outreach, and helps manage our coasts and reserves.
