Laboratory science reviews are conducted to evaluate the quality, relevance, and performance of research conducted in NOAA/OAR laboratories. These reviews help to strategically position laboratories in their planning of future science and are intended to ensure that laboratory research is linked to the NOAA Strategic Plan, remains relevant to the NOAA research mission and its priorities, and is consistent with NOAA planning, programming, and budgeting processes.
ARL’s next review is March 2022. Prior to that were a review in June 2016, and one was in May 2011. Please use the links below to access information for these reviews.
