But more than the papers, TOGA left new institutions: The IRI now exists, National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) changed its name and function to include climate prediction, there are a number of prediction centers throughout the United States, and the rest of the world, and the TAO array is undergoing transition to the first operational oceanography array in support of prediction. There are new institutions to look at the applications of ENSO predictions. Much of this is described in NRC (1996) cited above.

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.
The NGSS offer a detailed description of the key scientific ideas and practices that all students should learn by the time they graduate from high school. The standards are based largely on the 2011 National Research Council report A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas.
