About this Event

Everette Joseph, Ph.D.Director, National Center for Atmospheric Research

Actionable Earth System Science

Securing a thriving, sustainable and resilient 21st century from the existential threats of increasing environmental hazards will require a highly knowledge driven society. Such a society is able to assess and understand its near-term and long-term risks and mobilize mitigating or adaptive actions to preserve economic health and global well-being. Transdisciplinary discovery and innovation is an essential means of empowering society to this extent. Dr. Everette Josephwill discuss how research taking place at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and elsewhere in the Earth system science community is evolving to be more actionable for the benefit of society.

Joseph joined NCAR as director in 2019 from the University at Albany, State University of New York, where he was director of the Atmospheric Sciences Research Center. At Albany, Joseph co-led the $30.5 million New York State Mesonet for advanced weather detection and the New York State Center of Excellence for the Weather Enterprise. He has served as principal or co-principal investiga-tor on over $90 million in research grants from the National Science Foundation, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, NASA, and the Army High Performance Computing Research Center.

Joseph has been a member of the Board on Atmospheric Sciences and Climate of the National Acad-emy of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine since 2014. Other roles have included membership on the Steering Committee of the NASEM Decadal Survey for Earth Science and Applications from space; the NOAA Science Advisory Board; and the American Meteorological Society Commission on the Weath-er, Water and Climate Enterprise.
