Dr. Robert Detrick, NOAA Research Assistant Administrator has announced that our very own Harold Brooks received the OAR Dr. Daniel L. Albritton Outstanding Science Communicator Award.

“The OAR Dr. Daniel L. Albritton Outstanding Science Communicator Award recognizes outstanding achievement in communicating the meaning and value of NOAA-related science and research to non-scientific audiences.  The award is named in honor of Dr. Daniel Albritton, a retired OAR scientist who proved to be one of the most effective communicators of NOAA research and related science. This year’s Albritton Award recipient is Harold E. Brooks, NSSL.”

We thank Harold for all his work to make science accessible, especially during countless media interviews surrounding severe weather outbreaks.
