About the Lecture


About the Speaker

Dr. Rotunno specializes in storms and large-scale atmospheric events, including tornadoes, squall lines, gust fronts, hurricanes, polar lows, mid-latitude cyclones and fronts, sea breezes, and a variety of related areas. He combines theory and numerical modeling to seek ways of improving the forecasting of these weather phenomena, and has engaged in modeling that simulates certain atmospheric events, such as hurricanes, in unprecedented detail.

He is the recipient of the 2004 Jule G. Charney Award, American Meteorological Society, and the Banner I. Miller Award, AMS.
