National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) laboratory scientific reviews are conducted every five years to evaluate the quality, relevance, and performance of research conducted in OAR and to help in planning future science. These reviews are intended to ensure that OAR research is linked to the NOAA Strategic Plan, relevant to NOAA Research mission and priorities, and consistent with NOAA planning, programming, and budgeting. As part of this process, AOML will be reviewed March 4-6, 2014, in Miami, FL.
The review panel is Dr. Bill Lau (NASA Goddard), Dr. Rana Fine (RSMAS), Dr. Doug Luther (UH), Dr. Paul Sandifer (NOAA/NOS), Dr. Dick Dodge (NOVA Southeastern Univ.), Dr. T.N. Krishnamurti (FSU), and Dr. Mike Montgomery (Naval Postgraduate School).
OAR and AOML leadership will provide overviews of the programs, followed by presentations from scientists in each of the research areas. The review agenda and supporting materials are posted at http://www.aoml.noaa.gov/review/.Parts of the review are open to the public. Remote access via GoToMeeting will be available. Please register using the following links. The meetings will be in broadcast mode only.
