Joe Turk has been with JPL since 2009, where he has been involved with satellite missions for cloud and precipitation structure (CloudSat, TRMM, GPM), modeling of radar/radiometric microwave land surface properties, scatterometry and ocean vector winds (ISS/RapidScat), analysis of APR-2 airborne radar data, and modeling of GPS radio occultation observations. He is a member of NASA’s Ocean Vector Winds and Precipitation Measurement Missions science teams, and a co-investigator in NASA’s SERVIR projects for a satellite-based visualization system for water resources in the Hindu-Kush-Himalayan region. He is an editor of the AMS Journal of Hydrometeorology, and co-chairs JPL’s Scientific Visitors Colloquium Program (SVCP). Prior to JPL, he was with the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) Marine Meteorology Division, where he was involved with the development, implementation, and research-to-operations transitions of satellite applications for the Navy’s on-scene meteorological and tactical decision aids. He is a past co-chair of the International Precipitation Working Group (IPWG) and the AMS Satellite Meteorology and Oceanography Committee.
