Outreach – Lee Chesneau – Ocean Prediction Center –
“Lee Chesneau has taken on the responsibility of being the outreach focal point since 1995 when the Ocean Prediction Center (OPC) was formed. An important function of the OPC is to strengthen the linkages between marine forecast operations and the marine user community. This is accomplished through the OPC outreach program. For the past eleven years, Lee has distinguished himself by not only continually expanding the number of outreach contacts during the official time allotted for this by OPC , but also by selflessly ensuring that outreach opportunities were maximized outside of the officially allotted time.
During the past year Mr. Chesneau has continued his extraordinary efforts and personal commitment to increasing external awareness about NCEP and the OPC product suite and services. His efforts have played a key role in having the OPC recognized, both nationally and internationally, as the premier provider of marine safety and warning information to the public.”
