NOAA Administrator Resigns

By Ann Posegate

Yesterday, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration administrator Conrad C. Lautenbacher announced his resignation, effective Oct. 31. The agency has made many contributions to weather and climate science, monitoring, and warnings during the retired Navy vice admiral's seven-year term, including:

*National Integrated Drought Information System
*Advances in climate science, such as the Climate Change Science Program
*The CarbonTracker and Air Quality Ozone Forecasts
*Storm-Based Warnings for tornadoes, severe thunderstorms and flash floods
*Hurricane and Weather Research and Forecast System
*U.S. leadership in the Global Earth Observation System of Systems
*Unmanned Aerial Systems program
*New investments in Multifunction Phased Array Radar.

You can find more information about NOAA's latest accomplishments and Lautenbacher's resignation here.
