The Joint Institute for the Study of the Atmosphere and Ocean (JISAO) has existed since 1977 for the purpose of fostering research collaboration between National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (OAR) and the University of Washington (UW). Dr. Thomas Ackerman, a Battelle Fellow, is the current director.

It is one of 16 NOAA Cooperative Institutes (CIs).[1]

The JISAO research themes are:

  • Climate research and impacts
  • Marine ecosystems
  • Environmental chemistry
  • Ocean and coastal observations
  • Seafloor processes
  • Protection and restoration of marine resources
  • Tsunami observations and modeling
