ESRL Global Monitoring Division Review
Boulder, Colorado — April 3-5, 2013
Laboratory scientific reviews are conducted periodically to evaluate
the quality, relevance, and performance of research conducted in OAR
laboratories 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 OAR laboratory research is linked
to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Strategic Plan,
relevant to NOAA Research mission and priorities, and consistent with NOAA
planning, programming, and budgeting.
