In this talk I will introduce the Naval Research Laboratory and some of the activities of the Marine Meteorology Division in Monterey, California.  A broad overview of the Division’s niche in the US meteorological community will be provided along with our broad direction and some of the modeling systems and tools we use.  Deeper dives will be provided into i) long range prediction via the atmosphere/ocean/land/ice/wave Earth System Prediction Capability, ii) next-generation numerical weather prediction technology to take advantage of exoscale computing, iii) the US Navy’s regional prediction system for small-scale forecasts and tropical cyclone forecasts, iv) our unique program in aerosols and radiation, and v) some projects where atmospheric forecasts are incorporated in decision guidance system.  The talk will wrap up with a description of opportunities at NRL for students, postdocs, federal service.
