The National Weather Service Modernization And Associated Restructuring

Download The National Weather Service Modernization And Associated Restructuring books, The Modernization and Associated Restructuring (MAR) of the National Weather Service (NWS) was a large and complex re-engineering of a federal agency. The process lasted a decade and cost an estimated $4.5 billion. The result was greater integration of science into weather service activities and improved outreach and coordination with users of weather information. The MAR created a new, modernized NWS, and, significantly, it created a framework that will allow the NWS to keep up with technological changes in a more evolutionary manner. The MAR was both necessary and generally well executed. However, it required revolutionary, often difficult, changes. The procurement of large, complex technical systems presented challenges in and of itself. The MAR also affected the career paths and personal lives of a large portion of the field office workforce. The MAR created a new, modernized NWS, and, significantly, it created a framework that will allow the NWS to keep up with technological changes in a more evolutionary manner. The National Weather Service Modernization and Associated Restructuring presents the first comprehensive assessment of the execution of the MAR and its impact on the provision of weather services in the United States. This report provides an assessment that addresses the past modernization as well as lessons learned to support future improvements to NWS capabilities.

A Vision For The National Weather Service

by National Research Council, A Vision For The National Weather Service Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download A Vision For The National Weather Service books, In this study, the committee explores ways the National Weather Service (NWS) can take advantage of continuing advances in science and technology to meet the challenges of the future. The predictions are focused on the target year 2025. Because specific predictions about the state of science and technology or the NWS more than 25 years in the future will not be entirely accurate, the goal of this report is to identify and highlight trends that are most likely to influence change. The Panel on the Road Map for the Future National Weather Service developed an optimistic vision for 2025 based on advances in science and technology.

Assessment Of Hydrologic And Hydrometeorological Operations And Services

by National Research Council, Assessment Of Hydrologic And Hydrometeorological Operations And Services Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Assessment Of Hydrologic And Hydrometeorological Operations And Services books, Floods are by far the most devastating of all weather-related hazards in the United States. The National Weather Service (NWS) is charged by Congress to provide river and flood forecasts and warnings to the public to protect life and property and to promote the nation's economic and environmental well-being (such as through support for water resources management). As part of a modernization of its technologies and organizational structure, the NWS is undertaking a thorough updating of its hydrologic products and services and the activities that produce them. The National Weather Service Modernization Committee of the National Research Council undertook a comprehensive assessment of the NWS' plans and progress for the modernization of hydrologic and hydrometeorological operations and services. The committee's conclusions and recommendations and their related analysis and rationale are presented in this report.

Aviation Weather

by David A. Powner, Aviation Weather Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Aviation Weather books, In addition to providing aviation weather products developed at its own facilities, the National Weather Service (NWS) also provides on-site staff at each of the Federal Aviation Admin. (FAA's) en route centers -- the facilities that control high-altitude flight outside the airport tower and terminal areas. Over the last few years, FAA and NWS have been exploring options for enhancing the efficiency of the aviation weather services provided at en route centers. This report: (1) determines the status and plans of efforts to restructure the center weather service units; (2) evaluates efforts to establish a baseline of the current performance provided by these units; and (3) evaluates challenges to restructuring them. Charts and tables.
