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.
As part of this process, the Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML) will be reviewed March 4-6, 2014, in Miami, Florida. The review will examine the following research areas: (1) Oceans and Climate Research (including ocean observations); (2) Coastal Oceans and Ecosystems; and (3) Hurricanes and Tropical Meteorology.
OAR and AOML leadership will provide overviews of the programs, followed by sessions of presentations from scientists in each of the above research areas. The review agenda and supporting materials are posted on the AOML Laboratory Review website: http://www.aoml.noaa.gov/review/.
Remote access via GoToMeeting will be available. Please register using the links below as space is limited. This meeting will be in broadcast mode only. All time for questions is reserved for the review panel to conduct their business.
