Ed Dumas flies research drones and aircraft to collect data on climate change and extreme weather. He designs data sensors and data acquisition software for these manned and unmanned aircraft for NOAA’s Air Resources Laboratory (ARL) in Oak Ridge, Tennessee.
NOAA/CIRES scientist Gijs de Boer wins Presidential award for using science drones to understand climate change in the Arctic. “I love being part of the UAV revolution,” says de Boer.
Few scientists have been to the locations in Greenland where Marco Tedesco and his team conduct field research on snow and ice melt.
Using historical weather and sea ice information from ship logbooks, Kevin Wood, Ph.D., learns about conditions in the Arctic in centuries past.
As director of the NOAA Auke Bay Laboratories in Juneau, Alaska, Phil Mundy is as passionate about his lab’s role in supporting stewardship of marine and coastal resources as he is about explaining the lab’s work to broader audiences.
An atmospheric scientist at NOAA's Earth System Research Laboratory, Bryan Johnson specializes in ozone research. He estimates rates of ozone depletion across the globe. And he gets to use really big balloons to do it.
Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (OAR) - or "NOAA Research" - provides the research foundation for understanding the complex systems that support our planet. Working in partnership with other organizational units of the NOAA, a bureau of the Department of Commerce, NOAA Research enables better forecasts, earlier warnings for natural disasters, and a greater understanding of the Earth. Our role is to provide unbiased science to better manage the environment, nationally, and globally.
