Integral to NOAA CSL's research is the capacity to understand and identify priority needs of stakeholders and user groups and conduct research in response to those needs. A core product are our peer-reviewed research articles. CSL promotes and translates research and development outcomes to a variety of communications products that are customized to an array of audiences – our stakeholders and the public. Through collaboration with NOAA's line offices, as well as a network of ESRL science communicators, CSL delivers cohesive messages on its scientific research in ways that are meaningful and actionable. CSL also participates in educational events and initiatives that cultivate a science informed society.
