The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) operates a wide assortment of hydrographic survey, oceanographic research, and fisheries research vessels. These vessels are operated by NOAA's Office of Marine and Aviation Operations. Ships located in the Pacific are managed by the Marine Operations Center, Pacific, (MOP) in Seattle, Washington. Ships located in the Atlantic are managed by the Marine Operations Center, Atlantic, (MOA) in Norfolk, Virginia.

NOAA has many greening success stories, including the 350 sf greenroof installed at OMAO?s Marine Operation Center ? Atlantic significantly reduces storm water runoff quantity and improves runoff quality. As of May 2008, five NOAA facilities have received LEED certification.
