This online-only book by Captain Albert E. Theberge of the NOAA Corps (Ret.) traces the history of the NOAA Corps "is tied to the development of the physical sciences in the United States and that it has existed in varied forms as a partnership between civilian scientists and engineers and uniformed scientists and engineers almost since the inception of the Survey of the Coast under Thomas Jefferson in 1807."
