The NOAA Environmental Leadership Seminar Series are a sustained NOAA-corporate seminar series to provide insight into NOAA’s leadership in environmental science, by those who lead it and make it happen. The series invites NOAA senior leadership (HQ senior leadership, AA/DAA, and Subject Matter Experts from throughout the agency) as well as from our NOAA partners (i.e., NASA, Federal/State, Industry, Academia) to speak on topics relevant to NOAA’s mission. Sponsored by the NOAA Research Council.
