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.

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...

Hall, Phill

Flying Above a Hurricane without Leaving the Ground

 | 

Hall, Phill

A commissioned officer in the NOAA Commissioned Corps, Phill Hall recently became the first non-Department of Defense pilot qualified to fly the Global Hawk.

O'Connell, Martin

For Sea Grant Research, Oil Spill is Just the Latest Disaster in Gulf of Mexico Habitats

 | 

O'Connell, Martin

For Sea Grant scientist Martin O'Connell, researching aquatic communities in Louisiana has taken on new urgency since the Deepwater Horizon explosion and oil spill.

Stock, Charles

Laying the groundwork for understanding climate impacts today and centuries from now

 | 

Stock, Charles

“Climate scientists call me the fish guy and fisheries scientists call me the climate guy,” jokes Charles “Charlie” Stock, research oceanographer and modeler, at NOAA’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory...

Purkey, Sarah

Mining the Deep Ocean for Climate Clues

 | 

Purkey, Sarah

In order to better understand the whole climate system, researchers like Sarah Purkey gather and analyze data from the deep ocean.

Wood, Kevin

Exploring the History of Climate in the Arctic

 | 

Wood, Kevin

Using historical  weather and sea ice information from ship logbooks, Kevin Wood, Ph.D., learns about conditions in the Arctic in centuries past.

Barnes, Elizabeth

Questioning rivers in the sky

 | 

Barnes, Elizabeth

Since the 1960s scientists have used the so-called "butterfly effect" to explain why we struggle to predict such extreme events with more than two weeks of advanced notice. But Elizabeth Barnes, Assistant Professor at Colorado State...

Anderson, Eric

Using physics to describe the natural world

 | 

Anderson, Eric

A physical scientist at the NOAA-funded Cooperative Institute for Limnology and Ecosystem Research, Eric Anderson studies the movement of water in the Great Lakes using high-powered computers.
