National Weather Center Colloquium: Speaker Bio

Upper tropospheric and lower stratosphere water vapor observations from satellite, balloon and aircraft: what have we learned over the past 70 years?

Dr. Karen Rosenlof

Leader, Chemistry and Climate Processes Group
NOAA ESRL, Boulder

Dr. Rosenlof received her B.S. degree from University of California at Davis in 1982, M.S. degree from Colorado State University in 1984, and Ph.D. degree from University of Washington in 1994. She is a senior scientist with the NOAA Environmental Sciences Research Laboratory and leads the Chemistry and Climate Processes Group of the Chemical Sciences Division. Her expertise is in the interpretation of stratospheric water vapor and ozone data from in-situ sources as well as from satellite. In particular, her work has concentrated on understanding trends and variability of the middle atmosphere, with emphases on the mean meridional circulation, water vapor, and ozone.
