"I am very proud of our community for the amazing progress we have made in understanding and predicting the earth system, positively impacting the lives of people across the world,” said Stensrud. “And society’s need for weather, water and climate information will only continue to grow as we prepare for and respond to hazardous events and anthropogenic climate change.

We are stronger and more resilient in community.”
