This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

Notice of solicitation for members of a NOAA hurricane intensity research and development enterprise review panel.
The Under Secretary of Commerce for Oceans and Atmosphere has requested the NOAA Science Advisory Board (SAB) to conduct an external review of NOAA's hurricane intensity research and development enterprise. The SAB is chartered under the Federal Advisory Committee Act and is the only Federal Advisory Committee with the responsibility to advise the Under Secretary on long- and short-range strategies for research, education, and application of science to resource management and environmental assessment and prediction. The SAB is forming an external panel to conduct a review and draft recommendations that will lead to future generations of numerical hurricane model forecasts as well as improvements in operational forecasting. Nominations to the panel are being solicited. The intent is to select from the nominees; however, the SAB retains the prerogative to name people to the review team that were not nominated if it deems it necessary to achieve the desired balance. Once selected, the SAB will post the review panel members' names at http://www.sab.noaa.gov.
Nominations must be received by twenty-one days from publication of this notice.
Nominations should be submitted electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org.Start Further Info

The external review team will consist of no less than eight members whose expertise as a group covers tropical cyclone instrumentation; observations and modeling; atmospheric and ocean dynamics, data assimilation, and modeling; vortex dynamics; fluid mechanics; operational numerical environmental modeling; and forecast operations. The reviewers should have the following qualifications:
1. National and international professional recognition;
2. Knowledge of and experience with the science which supports NOAA's tropical cyclone research and operations;
3. Knowledge of and experience with the organization and management of complex mission-oriented research and development programs;
4. No perceived or actual vested interest or conflict of interest that might undermine the credibility of the review.
It is of note here that except for qualification criteria 4, the criteria are not absolute requirements. The qualifications of some individuals are expected to be outstanding with respect to one or more of the criteria, so that being unqualified with respect to other criteria would not make them ineligible. The Terms of Reference for the review is posted at: http://www.sab.noaa.gov/doc/documents.html. The working group will prepare a preliminary report of its analysis and findings for the March 2006 SAB meeting and a final report, including recommendations, for the July 2006 SAB meeting. The working group will be dissolved after completing any follow-on requests by the SAB following the July 2006 meeting.
Nominations: Anyone is eligible to nominate and self-nominations will be accepted. Nominations should provide: (1) The nominee's full name, title, institutional affiliation, and contact information; (2) the nominee's area(s) of expertise; and (3) a short description of their qualifications relative to the kinds of advice being solicited. Inclusion of a resume is desirable.Start Signature
