Meet Our Scientists

Morgan, Nick

Going to the Ends of the Earth for Science

 | 

Morgan, Nick

Late March is a pivotal time around the globe. It marks the start of spring in the Northern Hemisphere, and the coming of autumn in the Southern Hemisphere. In Antarctica, it’s when the sun drops below the horizon, not to rise...

Barnes, John

Monitoring Particles in the Air

 | 

Barnes, John

As a physical scientist and station chief for the NOAA Earth System Research Laboratory's Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii, John Barnes' specialty is lidar (light detection and ranging), often referred to as laser radar, which he uses to...

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...

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...

Chowdhury, Arindam Gan

Using the 'Wall of Wind' lab to simulate a hurricane

 | 

Chowdhury, Arindam Gan

NOAA Sea Grant researcher Arindam Gan Chowdhury creates indoor hurricanes using wind tunnels to improve the design of buildings in their path.

Buehner, Ted

NOAA Meteorologist Pacific Northwest Residents Count On

 | 

Buehner, Ted

Does it really rain all the time in Seattle? While some Seattleites groan over this question, Ted Buehner is glad to tell you.

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...

Lawrence, Bill

Monitoring river stage levels on the Southern Plains

 | 

Lawrence, Bill

National Weather Service hydrologist Bill Lawrence certainly knows the truth of a quote attributed to the ancient Greek philosopher Heraclitus: You could not step twice into the same river; for other waters are ever flowing on to you.

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.

Elkins, Jim

Keeping an eye on 'trace' gases

 | 

Elkins, Jim

NOAA scientist Jim Elkins, Ph.D., studies climate change and ozone depletion at the Earth System Research Laboratory in Boulder, Colo.
