CPO’s Rick Rosen, Roger Pulwarty, and Nancy Beller-Simms were among the twenty scientists from NOAA’s Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research to be recognized with a 2014 NOAA Administrator’s Award.
The NOAA Administrator’s Awards recognize employees who have demonstrated exceptional leadership, skill, and ingenuity in their significant, unique, and original contributions that bring unusual credit to NOAA, DOC, and the Federal Government.
These esteemed colleagues will be honored at a November ceremony at the NOAA Auditorium in Silver Spring, Maryland.
Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather. In 2011, the United States experienced a record high number (14) of climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 670 lives, caused more than 6,000 injuries, and cost $55 billion in damages. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
