In honor of Women's History Month, NOAA scientists from across the country are taking readers inside what a typical day in their life looks like.
Dr. Krisa Arzayus is the deputy director of the U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS) Office in the National Ocean Service.
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.
