NWS Climate Services Seminar Series
In Collaboration With NOAA Climate Connection Team
Keith Dixon is a research meteorologist and climate modeler within the Variability and Prediction Group at NOAA's Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) located in Princeton, New Jersey. Keith's expertise lies in the use of state-of-the-art computer models to simulate the Earth's global climate -- past, present, and future. During his more than 20 years at GFDL, Keith's research has focused on using complex computer models to study climate change and variability, often with an emphasis on the ocean's role on decadal to centennial time scales. His work was recognized in 2008, when he was named as the first winner of the Dr. Daniel L. Albritton Outstanding Science Communicator Award for achievement in communicating NOAA's science and research to non-scientific audiences.
