NRL Marine Meteorology Division Overview
The U.S. Naval Research Laboratory Marine Meteorology Division conducts a research and development program designed to better understand the atmosphere, the coupled environment, and their mission impacts so that they can be better simulated, better predicted, and help the U.S. Military.
Scientists at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory Marine Meteorology Division continuously develop and advance simulation and prediction capabilities to provide Navy decision makers timely and accurate information about the marine environment anywhere in the world. They frequently collaborate with a variety of military research and operational centers.
In addition to developing products like the Navy’s next-generation numerical weather prediction system, they create and support the nation’s most advanced data assimilation system, making the best use of observations from satellite, radar, radiosondes, remotely piloted systems and more for numerical weather prediction.
