Joseph Cione (October 25)
Use of Drones and Robots to Study the Ocean, the Atmosphere and Their Coupling.


Joseph Cione, a research meteorologist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Hurricane Research Division, specializes in studies of atmospheric and oceanic boundary layer thermodynamic processes in hurricanes and extra-tropical winter storms. Through out his career, Cione has shown an interest in exploring difficult to observe regions and has helped transition basic research from such studies into improved forecast operations. Some of his previous work illustrates a previously undocumented 'direct link' between storm-induced, ocean cooling and subsequent hurricane intensity change.
