This geodetic mark was established to
commemorate 200 years of science,
service, and stewardship
to the nation by NOAA
and its predecessor agencies
and to mark the location of
NOAA's 200th Celebration Time Capsule.
The materials reflect the essence of NOAA
in the year 2007,
as well as the agency's rich history,
preserved for the benefit of
NOAA's future community.
Sealed in December, 2007.
To be opened in 2032.
