The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has a new commanding officer at the NOAA Marine Operations Center-Atlantic.

NOAA’s Marine Operations Center-Atlantic manages the day to day operations of the nine research and survey ships in NOAA’s Atlantic fleet.

Each year these vessels conduct dozens of missions to assess fish and marine animal stocks, conduct coral reef research and explore the ocean.

Captain Anne Lynch takes over from NOAA Corps officer Anita Lopez, who served as the centre's commanding officer since June 2012.

Meanwhile, NOAA Vice Admiral Michael Devany has assumed the role of NOAA’s deputy under secretary for operations. Vice Adm. Devany succeeds David Kennedy who retired in December after more than 20 years of service.
