The mission of the Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory is to conduct a basic and applied research program in oceanography, tropical meteorology, atmospheric and oceanic chemistry, and acoustics. The program seeks to understand the physical characteristics and processes of the ocean and the atmosphere, both separately and as a coupled system.
The principal focus of these investigations is to provide knowledge that
will ultimately lead to improved prediction and forecasting of severe
storms, better utilization and management of marine resources, better
understanding of the factors affecting both climate and environmental
quality, and improved ocean and weather services for the nation.
We hope you will take the time to explore our laboratory, starting with either our research divisions, a general overview, or browse through a list of ongoing projects
