National Weather Center Colloquium: Speaker Bio

A future ground-based network of thermodynamic profilers: the infrared spectrometer option

Dr. David Turner
National Severe Storms Laboratory

Dr. Turner received his B.A. and M.S. degrees in Mathematics at Eastern Washington University in 1992 and 1994, and a Ph.D. in Atmospheric Science from the University of Wisconsin – Madison in 2003. He has spent about half of his career in research laboratories (Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and National Severe Storms Laboratory) and half – in academia (University of Wisconsin – Madison as a researcher and professor). He has held a number of leadership positions in DOE’s Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) and Atmospheric System Research (ASR) programs. He has a wide range of expertise in ground-based remote sensing and retrieval theory, and is using this information to improve understanding of boundary layer and low cloud processes.
