April 25, 2016

Dr. Scott L. Sellars has joined CW3E at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography to work on improving the understanding and forecasting of hydrologic extremes and their impacts on water resource management in the Western United States. Scott’s previous research has been in the area of hydrometeorology and climate, with a particular focus on computational science methodologies applied to remote sensing information for understanding connections between weather and hydrological events. He has previously held appointments at the University of California, Irvine, Columbia University’s Columbia Water Center (CWC), Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) and the International Research Institute for Climate and Society (IRI). His Ph.D. is on seasonal hydrometeorological prediction, awarded in 2014, and was undertaken at the University of California, Irvine.
