Meet Our Scientists

Brewer, Matt

Improving wind forecasts to increase reliance on renewable energy

 | 

Brewer, Matt

NOAA meteorologists like Matt Brewer with the Air Resources Laboratory are improving short-term wind forecasts, developing the science necessary for the country to increase reliance on renewable energy.

Bender, Morris

Using Math to Predict Hurricane Tracks

 | 

Bender, Morris

A senior researcher at NOAA's Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) in Princeton, N.J., Morris Bender has been on the hurricane research team at GFDL since 1976, developing highly accurate models for hurricane forecasting and more...

Schalk, Walter

Protecting National Security through Meteorology

 | 

Schalk, Walter

Walt Schalk has spent his career as a meteorologist protecting national security. He has modeled the atmospheric spread of clouds of radioactive material from nuclear accidents, planned for the long-term storage of nuclear waste, and...

de Gouw, Joost

Passionate about clean air and clear language

 | 

de Gouw, Joost

An atmospheric chemist at the NOAA Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences, Joost de Gouw aims to improve air quality by researching the origins of air pollution.

Overland, Jim

Eyes on the Arctic

 | 

Overland, Jim

Research oceanographer Jim Overland, Ph.D., helps decision-makers understand the science behind climate change and Arctic ecosystems.

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...

Brooks, Harold

Sharing discoveries about some of the most powerful weather systems on Earth

 | 

Brooks, Harold

Meteorologist Harold Brooks' goal is to provide people with the knowledge they need to make better decisions about hazardous weather.

Rogers, Spencer

Helping Communities Cope with Shifting Shorelines

 | 

Rogers, Spencer

Spencer Rogers focuses on coastal construction and erosion for North Carolina Sea Grant at the Center for Marine Science, University of North Carolina-Wilmington.

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...

Stein, Ariel

Tracking pollutants in the atmosphere with a world-renowned model

 | 

Stein, Ariel

One versatile model can track airborne dust from the Sahara Desert, forecast smoke dispersal from wildfires, and predict the spread of radiation through the atmosphere from nuclear accidents. Dr. Ariel Stein and his NOAA...
