De Boer, Gijs

NOAA/CIRES scientist Gijs de Boer wins Presidential award for using science drones to understand climate change in the Arctic. “I love being part of the UAV revolution,” says de Boer.

Jorgensen, Dave

Riding turbulence to improve storm warnings

 | 

Jorgensen, Dave

During his NOAA career, Dave Jorgensen has quite literally experienced a lot of turbulence.

Donner, Leo

Breaking down clouds and convection

 | 

Donner, Leo

When asked which instrument would most improve numerical modeling, Leo Donner can’t settle on just one. The physical scientist says it would take more than a single tool to advance his clouds and convection research, even without...

Knutson, Tom

Thinking Big on Climate Issues

 | 

Knutson, Tom

Whenever possible, Tom Knutson avoids one-dimensional thinking, but especially at work. Because the research meteorologist sees climate change as much more than a surface temperature issue, he approaches and studies it as a multi-layered...

Johnson, Gregory

Studying the "flywheel" of the climate system

 | 

Johnson, Gregory

An oceanographer for the NOAA Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory, Gregory Johnson calls the ocean the "flywheel" of the climate system. Read his profile to see why.

Lau, Gabriel

Projecting climate variations

 | 

Lau, Gabriel

NOAA scientist and Princeton University lecturer Gabriel Lau uses computer models to understand the climate system.

Probing the genetics of harmful algal blooms

 | 

Davis, Timothy

Today, NOAA issued the 2015 Harmful Algal Bloom Season Forecast for Lake Erie that integrates rainfall, river flow, and nutrient runoff measurements into computer models to better predict toxic algal blooms. As part of a team of NOAA...

Krasting, John

Understanding the Relationship Between Earth's Climate and Ecosystems

 | 

Krasting, John

Always naturally curious about his surroundings, particularly the weather and its different patterns, John Krasting's love for weather has led him to study the complexities of the Earth’s climate system.
