- Tom Knutson is a Research Meteorologist at the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) in Princeton, New Jersey. GFDL, a research laboratory of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), has very active projects in climate modeling and earth system modeling. Mr. Knutson has authored several studies on the potential impact of climate change on hurricanes. He and his colleagues at GFDL have been seeking a better scientific understanding of this problem using dynamical models and by assessing past hurricane data. Currently, Mr. Knutson serves as Co-Chair of a World Meteorological Organization (WMO) Expert Team on Climate Impacts on Tropical Cyclones, which recently published the updated assessment report: "Tropical Cyclones and Climate Change" in Nature Geoscience. He was also a lead author on the U.S. Climate Change Science Program (CCSP) assessment report 3.3 on "Weather and Climate Extremes in a Changing Climate".
