Heather Reeves

Assistant Director for NOAA Relations and Research Scientist

Dr. Reeves is the science lead for the transportation branch of the Multi-Radar/Multi-Sensor (MRMS) system. Her work centers around the development of decision-support tools for aviation and ground transportation and involves the integration of radar observations with other networked-data, including numerical model output. Current projects Dr. Reeves is involved with include a new hydrometeor classification algorithm, a road-hazards detection system, inclusion of novel radar data within the national radar mosaic, and new tools to determine the echo age in the national radar mosaic. Dr. Reeves also has several years’ experience in dynamics of orographic precipitation and in numerical weather prediction.
