Corso Named Deputy Assistant Administrator for Ocean Service

Thursday, October 05, 2006
William Corso has been appointed as the new deputy assistant administrator for NOAA's National Ocean Service. Corso will officially assume his duties on November 20. Corso has spent the past seven years working for Lockheed Martin. Currently, he directs the diversified projects group at Stennis Space Center, Bay St. Louis, Miss. He is responsible for cost, schedule, and technical performance of programs supporting government agencies at the Center, including software development in support of naval oceanographic operations worldwide and contributions to the conceptual design of the Integrated Ocean Observing System. Corso also has been director of Lockheed Martin’s remote sensing program, which provided scientific, engineering, information technology, and outreach support to NASA’s earth science applications and commercial remote sensing programs. Prior to coming to Stennis, Corso was senior geophysicist and managed a group that supported the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s environmental response team which responds to oil spills and other hazardous material events, among other duties.

Corso’s government experience was as an oceanographer with the United States Army Corps of Engineers’ New York district. His primary responsibility there was evaluating 19 aquatic containment options for the safe and effective disposal of approximately six million cubic yards per year of contaminated dredge material from the Port of New York and New Jersey.

Corso also was an assistant professor of marine science at Stockton State College, and served as a senior scientist for the Sea Education Association (SEA) in Woods Hole, Mass. At Stockton, he focused on coastal phenomena in and around the Great Bay/Mullica National Estuarine Research Reserve. While at SEA, he led seven international, blue-water cruises, including transatlantic and transcaribbean missions, that integrated physical, chemical, biological, and geological oceanographic projects.
