  • NRC Committee Formed in 2001 at the request of NOAA/NWS

    • Decades of evolving policy regarding weather services have produced two results for the U.S.

      • 1. Scope and diversity of services second to none

      • 2. Overlapping roles and occasional friction between NWS and private service providers.

  • Study conclusions

    • The NRC Committee judged this friction to be an acceptableprice to pay for excellent weather services,

    • but also concluded that it could be ameliorated.


  • Report Contained 11 recommendations

  • Recommendation 3

    • The NWS and relevant academic, state, and private organizations should seek a neutral host, such as the American Meteorological Society, to provide a periodic dedicated venue for the weather enterprise as a whole to discuss issues related to the public-private partnership.
