Meet Our Scientists

Johnson, Bryan

Monitoring ozone at the ends of the Earth

 | 

Johnson, Bryan

An atmospheric scientist at NOAA's Earth System Research Laboratory, Bryan Johnson specializes in ozone research. He estimates rates of ozone depletion across the globe. And he gets to use really big balloons to do it.

Otkin, Jason

Predicting rapidly-developing droughts based on plant stress

 | 

Otkin, Jason

Growing up on a farm in Minnesota, Jason Otkin felt that the weather controlled everything in his life. In the middle of “farm country,” Otkin’s parents made a living herding cattle and growing corn, soybeans, alfalfa,...

Winton, Mike

Exploring Climate Change in the Arctic

 | 

Winton, Mike

NOAA scientist Mike Winton enjoys the sense of discovery his work yields. The oceanographer, whose research is directed toward fathoming climate change in the Arctic, says each work day is an adventure unto itself and exposes him to...

Zhang, Rong

Crunching Climate Data for a Better Picture of Climate Change

 | 

Zhang, Rong

One focus of Zhang’s research interests is the dominant north-south ocean circulation feature in the Atlantic and how it impacts global and regional climate. Known as the the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation,...

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...

Nemunaitis-Monroe, Kodi

From sky to summit to sea: tracking raindrops for water level forecasts

 | 

Nemunaitis-Monroe, Kodi

Meteorologist Nemunaitis-Monroe oversees a demonstration project to predict water levels in coastal areas during tropical storms and hurricanes.

Goni, Gustav

Explaining how ocean observations answered key questions about the Deepwater Horizon oil spill

 | 

Goni, Gustav

A NOAA oceanographer at the Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Lab in Miami,  Gustavo Goni, Ph.D., lent his expertise in oceanography to NOAAs response to the Deepwater Horizon disaster in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010.

Cooper, Owen

Crunching data collected on a tail wind

 | 

Cooper, Owen

A research scientist with the NOAA-funded Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences at the University of Colorado at Boulder, Owen Cooper studies air pollutants to support informed management decisions concerning air...

Pan, WeiChiang

Hurricane Ready - Sea Grant Researcher Seeks Stability in Chaos

 | 

Pan, WeiChiang

WeiChiang Pang is developing a framework for predicting failures of the building envelope -- including the foundation, roof, walls, doors, and windows -- with the goal of desigining a hurricane-resistant home.

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.
