|Dr. Kelly Redmond: Professional Qualifications/CV|
Title: Deputy Director and Regional Climatologist, Western Regional Climate Center
Keywords: climate, meteorology, western usa
Dr. Kelly Redmond maintains an interest in all facets of climate and climate behavior, its temporal variability, spatial characteristics and physical causes, how climate interacts with other human and natural processes, and how such information is acquired, used, communicated, and perceived. As Regional Climatologist for the western United States, Dr. Redmond has played an active role nationally in development of the climate services sector. He has taught graduate and undergraduate classes in climatology, forecasting and synoptics, atmospheric dynamics and hydrology. Interdisciplinary interactions have encompassed topics such as fisheries and wildlife, forestry, water resources and hydrology, and western land management, with much emphasis on observational and data management systems, and NOAA Coop and Reference Networks. He is currently working on several projects for the National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS). He is closely involved in the NOAA Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessment (RISA) Program, and the Department of Interior Climate Science Center Program. He has served on and contributed to approximately a dozen committees for the National Academy of Sciences and National Research Council. He interacts daily with members of the public and with print, radio and television media across the West.
This has entailed work on topics such as climate variability, the observational process, instrumentation, data management, quality control, the interpretation of weather and climate information, drought frequency and characterization, energy consumption, climate indices, trends and variability in climate properties, flood frequency analysis, design criteria, spatial patterns of western U.S. climate variability, El Nino / Southern Oscillation, paleoclimate, wind energy, heavy precipitation and landslides, climate prediction, wildfire, Crater Lake climate and hydrology, salmon, atmospheric stability and inversions, western hydroclimate, and the national snow data set. Interdisciplinary interactions have included agriculture, fisheries, wildlife, forestry, limnology, engineering, water resources and hydrology, land management, entomology, horticulture, marine and terrestrial systems.
Dr. Redmond is currently participating in several national and regional activities, initiatives and projects, including: NOAA Regional Climate Center Program, National Weather Service Coop Modernization, the NOAA Climate Reference Network, the Consortium for Integrated Climate Research in Mountain Regions (CIRMOUNT), the National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS), NOAA Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessment (RISA) Program under the Climate Program Office, the California Energy Commission PIER and CIEE programs, and the CalFed Bay-Delta Program.
