NOAA Research's Sandy Supplemental Program Overview
Sandy struck the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast coasts with powerful winds, rain, and storm surges that caused unprecedented damages in some of the nation’s most populous areas. The communities hit by Sandy will be rebuilding and recovering for years to come. This document provides more details on OAR's $74.7 million investment across four areas, approximately half of which will support extramural investigators.
Upcoming OAR Laboratory Reviews
OAR periodically conducts laboratory science reviews to evaluate the quality, relevance, and performance of research conducted within each OAR laboratory and to provide strategic advice to the laboratory.
