To the Reader:

I am pleased to provide the Budget Summary for the Department of Commerce's National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration for Fiscal Year 1999.

It contains information on NOAA's activities and strategic planning goals for members of Congress, congressional staff, media, NOAA constituents and individuals with an interest in NOAA programs and how they enhance the goals of the DOC.

More than a budget document, this submission is designed to clearly set forth the return on public investment in a mission that affects each citizen on a daily basis and ranges from the depths of the oceans to the heights of space.

D. James Baker,
