NOAA’s Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (OAR), National Weather Service (NWS), and National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS) co-led a Workshop on the Development of Climate Information Systems for Heat Health Early Warning: Assessing Knowledge, Needs, and the Path Forward, in Chicago from July 28-30.
In 2014, NOAA’s Climate Program Office, led by Director Wayne Higgins, went through the process of rearticulating its mission, vision, and unique value through the development of the CPO Strategic Plan. The office also made major progress on an Implementation Plan that provides a roadmap to achieving important outcomes in climate science.
NOAA is looking for an innovative leader to serve as the Director for our Climate Program Office (CPO). Highly qualified candidates will have a combination of strong scientific credentials, experience leading large scientific programs, and a proven ability to collaborate with diverse climate stakeholders.
