Don Paschal: Is lab beneficial?

April 3, 2014 

Your April 2 “Wrong tide” editorial attempts to defend NOAA’s Beaufort lab. It’s interesting you didn’t include one discovery or concrete scientific benefit in the lab’s 115-year existence. Logically, we should measure the scientific benefits with the cost.
