Harry is the Director for the United States National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Center for Satellite Applications and Research (STAR), the unit of the NOAA Satellite and Information Service responsible for transforming raw and intermediate satellite data flows from NOAA and global observing system satellites into operational weather and environmental data and information products. These feed forecast models, and operations personnel in the National Weather Service, National Ocean Service, and the National Marine Fisheries Service and partners around the world. They support research, and long term environmental information products to meet NOAA’s and its partner weather and environmental information needs to protect life, property and livelihoods. Harry began this assignment in January 2017 to ensure successful transition to operations for GOES 16 and JPSS-1 satellite data products, and chart a path to enable STAR to best harness the growing global observing system, emerging data product technologies and the advent of commercial weather data.
