CREST Scientist Supports Post Hurricane Sandy Research
CREST Scientist Supports Post Hurricane Sandy Research

Seven months after hurricane Sandy created major devastation along the New York and New Jersey coastal communities, scientist from NOAA EPP CREST Center at the City University of New York (CUNY) analyzed water quality anomalies around New York City. Professor Jorge Gonzalez, a member of the CREST team, along with his student research team is studying the potential pollution of New York City' s coastal waters.

Experts engaged in researching the impacts to coastal and estuarine environments predict some marked long term contamination of coastal water. Sediments that hurricane Sandy spread throughout the city for more than 100 miles, will soon return to the coast waters and the impacts of these sediments and associated pollutants are being analyzed. UNIVISION television interviewed CREST Professor Gonzales to learn more about the water quality tests that have been conducted in the New York coastal waters.

This interview in the following video is conducted entirely in Spanish. To view, please click here.

NOAA Center for Atmospheric Science Team in Atlantic Ocean Researching Storm Prediction and Hurricanes in U.S. and the Caribbean
A NOAA Center for Atmospheric Sciences (NCAS) team led by Howard University professor Vernon Morris Ph.D. is currently in the tropical Atlantic Ocean, where they are studying how small particles suspended in the air originating from Africa affect weather in the U.S. and Caribbean. The Aerosols and Ocean Science Expedition (AEROSE) is investigating the connection between African winds and the particles they carry, called aerosols, and the weather across the Atlantic where the data collected on the expedition could potentially improve hurricane forecasting. The NCAS group joins an oceanographic scientific team headed by NOAA scientist Claudia Schmid, Ph.D. The team is traveling aboard the NOAA vessel Ronald H. Brown, named after the first African-American U.S. Secretary of Commerce. Read more >>

Dr. Kathryn Sullivan, Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Environmental Observation and Prediction, Deputy Administrator and Acting Chief Scientist welcomed NOAA employees to the agency's 2012 Black History Month Commemoration. Celebrating the African American women who have helped NOAA become the agency it is today, Dr. Sullivan emphasized that NOAA is committed to increasing minority representation in sciences. At the undergraduate and graduate level, the Educational Partnership Program (EPP) has supported some 2500 college students—of whom 23% are African American women—as they obtain their degrees in NOAA-relevant fields. She cited EPP-funded support of students studying and doing applied research in NOAA-critical fields, as well as our collaborative efforts between Minority Serving Institutions and NOAA programs.
