English term or phrase: the Department of the Interior ...
the Department of the Interior and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
zaika
See below.
Explanation:

1. Министерствo природных ресурсов США (Ministerstvo prirodnikh resursov)

Let me cite Webster’s:

Department of the Interior,
the department of the U.S. federal government charged with the conservation and development of the natural resources of the U.S. and its possessions. Abbr.: DOI

Although many dictionaries propose this as the only option, in no way can this be applicable, in your context, to the sense of the “Ministry of Internal Affairs”. I have interpreted in one of their workshops, and I remember that a speaker tried to explain the difference to the audience.

See some examples of the Russian name, which are fully in line with this definition:

“... золото медь уголь молибден и платину а также ряда подразделений Министерства природных ресурсов сша рассказал ясиа начальник управления экономики”
http://www.yakutia.ru/~resp/n28876/56-27.html -

“Знак, который он не заметил прежде, гласил: Министерство природных ресурсов США “.
http://www.48.org/txt/lit/laila.moral.htm


2. Национальная администрация по океанографии и атмосфере (Natsional’naya administratsiya po okeanografii i atmosfere)

See an example below:

“... связи и разведке, а также доктора Джеймса Бейкера, директора Национальной администрации по океанографии и атмосфере, Жене Конти, помощника Министра ... “

Hope that this helps.

Министерство землепользования


Explanation:
1. В США это мин-во не соответствует русскому названию «МВД»; оно занимается проблемами использования федеральных земель, резерваций и пр. Поэтому переводить буквально я бы не стал.

2. Национальное Управление по океанам и атмосфере. Управление как составная часть министерства (в данном случае – торговли) звучит лучше, чем «Администрация». Океан не один, поэтому, в отличие от атмосферы, его надо давать во множественном числе.

Министерство (Департамент) Внутренних Дел и Национальное Управление по делам Океанов и Атмосферы


Explanation:
In Russian some troubles might occur when you try to translate the titles of USA national administration.

For instance, Department of State is always translated as Государственный Департамент, or Госдеп, but not Министерство Иностранных Дел.

Taking into account that they use the combination "the Interior", we should use, as far I see, the word Департамент if we need to stress OUR vision of this term. But, as far you can meet in Russian references, the term Министерство Внутренних Дел is also in use.

As for the second term, please take into account that one additional translation is also valid:
Национальное Управление ПО ВОПРОСАМ Океанов и Атмосферы.

This means that namely this part of the state struture is responsible for solving questions related to these spheres of the Environment.
