Chip Konrad is a Professor of Geography at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He is the Director of the NOAA Southeast Regional Climate Center. He is a synoptic, and applied climatologist who studies extreme weather and its impacts on society. His synoptic climatological research identifies the different ways that atmospheric features and processes come together in space and time to generate extreme weather events. His applied work investigates how different types of extreme weather affect communities and how their vulnerabilities vary geographically.
