Marine Meteorology Division, Naval Research Laboratory, Monterey
The Naval Research Laboratory is the corporate research laboratory for the Navy and Marine Corps. The laboratory’s Marine Meteorology Division conducts a research and development program designed to improve the basic understanding of atmospheric processes and the atmosphere’s interaction with the ocean, land and cryosphere; to develop and implement automated analysis, prediction and weather interpretation systems for DOD users; and to study the effect of the atmosphere on naval weapons systems.
The Marine Meteorology Division is part of the laboratory’s Ocean and Atmospheric Science and Technology Directorate, which contains six divisions performing broadly based scientific research and advanced technology development in the fields of marine geosciences, acoustics, oceanography, marine meteorology, remote sensing and space science — covering the bottom of the ocean to the top of the atmosphere to meet identified and anticipated needs of the Navy and Marine Corps.
