Weather Research Center, Inc.
September 16, 2010
As a young twenty-something Ensign in the U.S. Navy I had the priviledge of being the communications officer for the Fleet Weather Central/Joint Typhoon Warning Center, Guam. My division ensured critical meteorological and oceanographic information was delivered to the fleet commanders on a timely and accurate manner. This tour of duty opened my eyes on how atmospheric conditions has an impact on an ordinary day in ones life to the success of a military mission, a launch of a NASA rocket, the playing of a golf match to playing "in tune" for an orchestral concert. Weather is a part of life and the Weather Research Center provides the people, technology as well as the educational and historical information to help the community understand the how and why the weather acts the way it does. There are lots of "hands-on" activities to learn about the science of weather at the Weather Research Center. The professional staff is also willing to do corporate and educational outreach programs to accomodate the public it serves. For the above mentioned reasons, I highly recommend not only touring the Weather Research Center but also contributing to its physical growth in support of our community.
