Rebecca E. Morss is a Scientist III in the Mesoscale and Microscale Meteorology Division and is affiliated with NCAR's Integrated Science Program. She received a Ph.D. in Atmospheric Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a B.A. from the University of Chicago. Dr. Morss studies meteorological, socioeconomic, and public policy aspects of weather forecasts, floods, hurricanes, and related topics. Her recent research includes studies of meteorological and oceanographic observing network design; the use of weather and climate information in decision making; scale interactions in atmospheric predictability; and communication of uncertainty in weather forecasts. Through disciplinary and interdisciplinary work, she aims to integrate atmospheric science and socioeconomic/policy perspectives to provide information for the benefit of society. She is a founding member of NCAR’s Collaborative Program on the Societal Impacts and Economic Benefits of Weather Information (Societal Impacts Program, SIP) and the NCAR-based Weather and Society * Integrated Studies program. She recently served as a member of two National Research Council committees: the Committee on Estimating and Communicating Uncertainty in Weather and Climate Forecasts and the Committee on Progress and Priorities of U.S. Weather Research and Research-to-Operations Activities. In 2008, she was elected to the Council of the American Meteorological Society.
