issues of long-range transport of acidic and photochemical pollutants from Asia, and on the impact of Asian development on the environment. He is an active instructor and advisor, having supervised 29 M.S. and 24 Ph.D. students. Dr. Carmichael received his Ph.D. in chemical engineering from the University of Kentucky in 1979. He has served as department chair and is co-director of the Center for Global and Regional Environmental Research. He is presently chair of the Scientific Advisory Committee of the World Meteorological Organization Urban Environment Research Program and serves on the steering committee of the Commission on Atmospheric Chemistry and Global Pollution. He has been a member and chair of the American Meteorological Society’s Committee on Atmospheric Chemistry and on numerous other committees and boards. Dr. Carmichael has over 220 refereed journal publications and serves on a number of editorial boards.
Frederick H. Carr is the Mark and Kandi McCasland Professor of Meteorology and the director of the School of Meteorology at the University of Oklahoma. He received his Ph.D. in meteorology from Florida State University, followed by a postdoctoral appointment at State University of New York-Albany. His research interests include synoptic, tropical, and mesoscale meteorology, numerical weather prediction and data assimilation, and the use of new observing systems in diagnostic and numerical weather prediction studies. Dr. Carr has held visiting scientist positions at the National Centers for Environmental Prediction, the National Center for Atmospheric Research, and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA’s) Forecast Systems Laboratory. He is the associate director of the Center for the Analysis and Prediction of Storms at the University of Oklahoma and is also an associate director of Collaborative Adaptive Sensing of the Atmosphere, a National Science Foundation (NSF) Engineering Research Center. Carr is a fellow of the American Meteorological Society (AMS) and has served as chair of the AMS Board on Higher Education, a member of the AMS Council, and a member of the AMS Educational Advisory Committee, and he has also served as an editor of Monthly Weather Review. Dr. Carr was chair of the first COMET Advisory Panel and was named one of the 10 “Founders of COMET.” In addition, he has served on the NSF Committee of Visitors to evaluate ATM, the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research Nominating Committee (as chair), the North American Observing Systems committee, and NOAA External Review Panels of the Forecast Systems Laboratory and the Mesoscale Development Laboratory, and was co-organizer of the U.S. Weather Research Program Workshops on Data Assimilation and Mesoscale Observing Systems.
