NOAA seeking public input for research and development plan

Comments are due by Friday, February 8

The public is invited to help set the course for NOAA research and development for the coming years by making suggestions and comments on research and development.

Public comments will be welcomed until Friday, February 8, 2019. You can submit your comments by email to Please include the subject line “NOAA R&D Plan Public Comment.”

NOAA research and development is an investment in the scientific knowledge and technology that will allow the United States to protect lives and property, adapt to challenges, sustain a strong economy, and manage natural resources. The research and development strategic plan will provide a common understanding among NOAA's leadership, workforce, partners, and constituents on the value and direction of NOAA research and development activities.

To help you get started, plan developers have proposed three vision areas for NOAA’s next 7-year Research and Development Plan. They are:

--Reducing societal impacts from severe weather and other environmental phenomena

--Sustaining the use of ocean and coastal resources

--Robust and effective research, development and transition to this research to operations

For more information, please see the  Federal Register Notice or visit NOAA's website.
