National Weather Center Colloquium: Speaker Bio

Of NOAA and Polarization: saga about how it happened

Dr. Dusan Zrnic

National Severe Storms Laboratory, NOAA

Dr. Zrnic is a fellow of the IEEE and AMS. He developed several scientific and engineering aspects of polarimetric weather radar technology leading to implementation on the WSR-88Ds. He was inducted into the USA National Academy of Engineering in 2006 “for development of potent radar methods that have greatly enhanced operational weather detection and warning and advanced meteorological research” and recognized by the AMS Remote Sensing Prize in 2008 “for pioneering and substantial contributions to improvements of meteorological radars for both research and operational applications.”
