Celebrating Women’s History Month 2023 with Samantha Wills


This article highlights an interview with Dr. Samantha Wills, a research scientist at University of Washington Cooperative Institute for Climate, Ocean, and Ecosystem Studies (CICOES) and NOAA Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory (PMEL). She works in the NOAA Ocean Climate Stations group led by Dr. Meghan Cronin, and uses novel Saildrone uncrewed surface vehicles to collect observations over remote regions of the tropical Pacific Ocean. These observations allow her to study mesoscale air-sea variability associated with atmospheric cold pool phenomena over the tropical ocean.

This is the first time a drone was used to tag free-swimming large whales in U.S. waters. Photo taken by Laura Howes under NOAA Fisheries Permit No. 18786-06.

NOAA Science Report features new data-gathering drones, advances in wind, weather and water forecasts

Discovering a 207-year-old whaling ship, advancing air-quality forecasts, improving storm surge and wind forecasts, and deploying the first-ever drone-based tagging of endangered whales. These are a few of the more than 60 stories about NOAA’s many notable scientific accomplishments from the past year that are featured in the 2022 NOAA Science Report, which emphasizes a wide range of impacts that NOAA science advancements have on the lives of Americans.
