NOAA Administrator Lubchenco to Resign

By Christy Gullion

NOAA Administrator Jane Lubchenco announced today that she will step down in February, ending a four-year tenure that saw the longtime academic juggle a slate of controversial issues, from the Gulf of Mexico oil spill to the skyrocketing cost of weather satellites. In an email to employees yesterday, Lubchenco wrote that she was leaving NOAA to return to her family and academic career in Oregon.
