The Science Advisory Board is called upon to provide advice to NOAA on a wide variety of topics important to the agency. Because of the breadth of subject matter that the group addresses, they frequently consult with additional experts on specific topics. In some cases, certain topics are deemed to be of long-term interest for NOAA and the SAB establishes groups of experts with whom they consult on a regular basis (standing working groups) that provide written recommendations back to the Science Advisory Board.

Below you will find information to help orient those of you who have recently joined the SAB or one of its four standing working groups, or are interested in doing so. We recommend you bookmark this page for future reference as it can only be accessed through direct url.
