Vanda Grubišić, Ph.D., a research meteorologist and experienced scientific leader, has been named the director of NOAA’s Global Monitoring Laboratory in Boulder, Colorado. Grubišić will join one of the world’s preeminent research institutions for monitoring long-term changes in the atmosphere, including those caused by climate change. She starts on March 27.

New research has identified two additional regions of Asia as contributing to rising emissions of the ozone-destroying chemical CFC-11 identified by NOAA scientists in 2018.
The sudden and sustained risesine 2007 in atmospheric levels of the potent greenhouse gas methane has posed one of the most significant and pressing questions in climate research: Where is it coming from?
Scientists with NOAA's Global Monitoring Laboratory will evaluate the optimal placement of greenhouse-gas sampling inlets on a Boeing 737 flying testbed owned by Alaska Air during Boeing's 2021 ecoDemonstrator technology development program.
The giant methane cloud spotted by satellite over the U.S. Southwest that made national headlines in 2014 wasn’t a persistent, undiscovered “hotspot” as first thought, but the result of a nightly atmospheric condition and topography that trapped industrial and natural emissions of the potent greenhouse gas near the ground in the basin overnight, according to new research published in the journal Elementa by CIRES and NOAA.
Atmospheric carbon dioxide measured at Mauna Loa Observatory reached a seasonal peak of 417.1 parts per million for 2020 in May, the highest monthly reading ever recorded. Monthly CO2 values at Mauna Loa first breached the 400 ppm threshold in 2014, and are now at levels not experienced by the atmosphere in several million years.
Atmospheric methane is a powerful greenhouse gas that also contributes to ground-level ozone pollution. In the past decade, there has been intense scientific focus on
Monthly average surpassed 414 parts per million at Mauna Loa observatory Atmospheric carbon dioxide continued its rapid rise in 2019, with the average for May
It’s not every day you get a message from space. But on May 21, former NOAA employee Christina Koch greeted attendees at NOAA’s 47th Global Monitoring
