Program Overview:

Carven Scott is Regional Director, National Oceanic And Atmospheric Administration (NOAA-National Weather Service, Alaska Region Headquarters Lead, NOAA Alaska Regional Team. The Alaska Region provides weather, water, aviation and climate services to the nation’s largest and most geographically complex area. Mr. Scott earned a Bachelor of Science in Meteorology with a minor in Computer Science in 1975 from Texas A&M University, where he earned a Master of Science in Meteorology in 1977.

Mr. Scott oversees three Weather Forecast Offices, the National Tsunami Warning Center, the Alaska Pacific River Forecast Center, the Alaska Aviation Weather Unit, the Anchorage Center Weather Service Unit and 11 Weather Service Offices. The Alaska Aviation Weather Unit manages the Anchorage Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC), one of only nine such centers worldwide. The National Tsunami Warning Center is responsible for warning the Pacific and Atlantic coasts of the continental United States and Canada. Alaska Region’s marine forecast and warning area is expansive, from the Canadian Border to the Russian Border, including the Gulf of Alaska, the Bering Sea and the Arctic Coast.

Mr. Scott proudly served in the military for more than 30 years, retiring as a Captain in the Navy Reserve in March 2014. During his last tour he served as the Commanding Officer of the Naval Meteorology and Oceanography (METOC) Reserve Headquarters Unit. He completed Joint Professional Military Education (JPME) Phase I through the Naval War College in 2009, and was designated as an Information Dominance Warfare Officer (IDWO) in 2010. Mr. Scott was awarded the Navy Meritorious Service Medal in 2014.

National Oceanic And Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is an agency that enriches life through science. Its reach goes from the surface of the sun to the depths of the ocean floor as it works to keep citizens informed of the changing environment around them. From daily weather forecasts, severe storm warnings, and climate monitoring to fisheries management, coastal restoration, and supporting marine commerce, NOAA’s products and services support economic vitality and affect more than one-third of America’s gross domestic product. NOAA’s dedicated scientists use cutting-edge research and high-tech instrumentation to provide citizens, planners, emergency managers and other decision makers with reliable information they need when they need it.

Science at NOAA is the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the oceans, atmosphere, and related ecosystems; integration of research and analysis; observations and monitoring; and environmental modeling. NOAA science includes discoveries and ever new understanding of the oceans and atmosphere, and the application of this understanding to such issues as the causes and consequences of climate change, the physical dynamics of high-impact weather events, the dynamics of complex ecosystems and biodiversity, and the ability to model and predict the future states of these systems. Science provides the foundation and future promise of the service and stewardship elements of NOAA’s mission.

Underlying NOAA’s continued success is its unique infrastructure. NOAA’s core mission functions require satellite systems, ships, buoys, aircraft, research facilities, high-performance computing, and information management and distribution systems. The agency provides research-to-application capabilities that can recognize and apply significant new understanding to questions, develop research products and methods, and apply emerging science and technology to user needs. NOAA invests in and depends heavily on the science, management, and engagement capabilities of its partners. Collectively, NOAA’s organizational enterprise-wide capabilities — its people, infrastructure, research, and partnerships — are essential for NOAA to achieve its vision, mission, and long-term goals.

The National Weather Service (NWS) is an agency of the United States Federal Government that is tasked with providing weather forecasts, warnings of hazardous weather, and other weather-related products to organizations and the public for the purposes of protection, safety, and general information. It is a part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) branch of the Department of Commerce, and is headquartered in Silver Spring, Maryland within the Washington metropolitan area. The agency was known as the United States Weather Bureau from 1890 until it adopted its current name in 1970.

The NWS performs its primary task through a collection of national and regional centers, and 122 local Weather Forecast Offices (WFOs). As the NWS is an agency of the US Federal Government, most of its products are in the public domain and available free of charge.
