NOAA releases Chief Scientist's Annual Report

NOAA releases Chief Scientist's Annual Report

The NOAA Chief Scientist’s Annual Report provides a corporate-level overview of NOAA’s Research and Development (R&D) activities, including a clear expression of the agency's research portfolio logic. As the nation’s environmental intelligence agency, with a legacy reaching back more than 200 years, NOAA supports a research enterprise that is a rich blend of disciplines, methods, and objectives. This document, a first of its kind, highlights NOAA’s progress towards meeting agency priorities in R&D, scientific integrity, and workforce development.

Since Katrina: A decade of NOAA hurricane research

A decade ago, the United States experienced one of the most active and destructive hurricane seasons ever recorded. The loss of life and destruction of property from Hurricanes Katrina (Aug. 29), Rita (Sept. 24), and Wilma (Oct. 24) drove NOAA to re-evaluate hurricane research and severe storm preparedness.

Student Interns at NOAA Labs are a Breath of Fresh Air

This summer, the Educational Partnership Program (EPP) invited its first cohort of Cooperative Science Center (CSC) students to participate in the NOAA Experiential Research and Training Opportunity (NERTO). This program is one of several ways the EPP aims to advance collaborative research in the NOAA-mission sciences through the talent of student researchers, which can also be placed as Undergraduate Scholars and Hollings Scholars. Since 2001, EPP CSCs and other scholarship programs have supported over 2,500 students.
