Laboratory science reviews are conducted periodically to evaluate the quality, performance and importance of research conducted in OAR laboratories relative to both internal and external interests, and to help strategically position the laboratory in its planning of future science. These reviews are intended to ensure that laboratory research is linked to the NOAA’s Strategic Plan, relevant to NOAA’s research mission and priorities, and consistent with NOAA planning, programming, and budgeting.
This review will cover Air Resources Laboratory research over the period 2010 – 2015. In some documents, the timeframe may span longer. ARL research areas are:
- Atmospheric Dispersion & Boundary Layer Characterization
- Atmospheric Chemistry and Deposition
- Climate Observations and Analyses
Please use the navigation links on the right of the page to access materials for the review.
The Science Presentations portion of the review will be broadcast live via webinar on Tuesday, June 21 and Wednesday, June 22.
