Chip Konrad is an Associate Professor of Geography at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Since 2010 he has been Director of the NOAA Southeast Regional Climate Center. His research explores the spatial and temporal patterns of atmospheric processes and the multiple linkages of these processes to surface weather and climate variability. He utilizes a synoptic climatological approach to determine the commonalities and differences in large scale climate patters and processes and the atmospheric field features that most effectively distinguish event characteristics, such as intensity, spatial pattern, and diurnal timing.
