NOAA PMEL is currently celebrating its 50th anniversary of NOAA. PMEL is working on a special issue in Oceanography and a 2-day symposium in October/November to highlight and celebrate a half-century of accomplishments and what’s next for the lab. Since 1973, PMEL has become a world-class laboratory that makes critical observations and conducts groundbreaking research to advance our knowledge of the global ocean and its interactions with the earth, atmosphere, ecosystems, and climate. We are searching for folks to join in our campaign efforts to help communicate our accomplishments and develop our social media strategy (newly launched for PMEL!).
