GFDL - Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory

GFDL Science Review

May 20 – May 22, 2014

Laboratory scientific 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 OAR laboratory research is linked to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Strategic Plan, relevant to NOAA’s research mission and priorities, and consistent with NOAA planning, programming, and budgeting.

This review will cover Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory research over the last ten years, with a focus on the five years since the 2009 Review. The research themes are:

  • Modeling the Earth System
  • Climate Variability and Change: Understanding and Prediction
  • Chemistry, Carbon, Ecosystems, and Climate
