Welcome to "Paths Less Taken - NOAA at the Ends of the Earth"

Scientists, sailors, pilots, divers, and other members of the NOAA family and its predecessor agencies have worked on every continent and in every climate that exists on Earth.

This album records but a small fraction of that experience but will take you from Arctic regions to the South Pole, island-hopping from tropics to polar regions, and from the stratosphere to the bottom of the sea.

Share the wonders of our planet with these dedicated professionals as they lead you down their paths, the "Paths Less Taken" and join NOAA on a journey to the very ends of the Earth.
