NOAA’s long-standing mission in real life is the same in virtual worlds—to create an informed society that understands the role of the ocean, coasts, and atmosphere in the global ecosystem to make the best social and economic decisions. By incorporating virtual worlds into their multi-media communication and educational programs including inworld events and a vast array of immersive simulations and 3D exhibits, NOAA has found meaningful and profound ways to reach new audiences—in the virtual world and in the physical one.
