HMT Project Manager Transitions to National Weather Service
Tim is not entirely new to the NWS. While participating in NOAA's Leadership Competencies Development Program, he was on a five-month detail to the NWS Office of Science and Technology to help establish the NOAA Joint Radar Planning Team. Prior to joining NOAA, Tim spent two years with the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) where he contributed to the studies of the climates of the 20th and 21st centuries by putting the natural and anthropogenic forcings into the coupled climate system model, and engaged in studies of the Earth's water and energy cycles.
Tim's primary responsibilities within OHD will focus on the development of a suite of hydrometeorological forcings in support of the Integrated Water Resources Science and Services (IWRSS) initiative for America. In addition to working on the hydrometeorology forcings team, Tim will contribute to IWRSS program development and study hydroclimate issues. He will be based in Boulder to help foster IWRSS and OHD connections to the climate, water and weather research communities, including serving as a liaison to HMT, but he will be in Silver Spring during the first week of each month. The HMT team would like to thank Tim for his dedicated service to the project and wish him well in his new endeavors at OHD.
