Dr. Richard H Johnson
Professor Johnson joined the Colorado State University Department of Atmospheric Faculty in 1980 after completing over two years on the faculty at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. He served as a lead scientist in the recent TOGA-COARE, SCSMEX, and NAME field expeditions. He has also served as a co-chief editor of the Journal of Atmospheric Science as a member of the UCAR Board of Trustees, and is currently a member of the CLIVAR SSC. Professor Johnson's research focuses on atmospheric convection and the planetary boundary layer. Current efforts are directed toward an understanding of midlatitude and tropical mesoscale convective systems and the nature of convection in the equatorial western Pacific, Asian monsoon, and North American monsoon regions.
