Research in NOAA: Toward Understanding and Predicting Earth's Environment. A Five-Year Plan: Fiscal Years 2008-2012

This second edition of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA's) 5-Year Research Plan continues to describe the short-term research activities needed to address the major environmental challenges facing society, which NOAA outlined in 2005 in its 20-Year Research Vision. This edition provides specific research milestones to be achieved during FY2008-2012, and it links these milestones directly to performance objectives in NOAA's Strategic Plan. To reach the milestones, the plan emphasizes the integration of the observational, experimental, analytical, and modeling tools that are at the core of NOAA's research. Chapter 8, Commerce and Transportation Mission Goal: Support the Nation's Commerce with Information for Safe, Efficient, and Environmentally Sound Transportation, discusses NOAA's plan for providing the critical information needed for the safe and efficient movement of people, goods and services, for the nation's competitive position in the global market, and for reducing risk to the environment from transportation and cargo related accidents.
