Sheldon Drobot (1, 2) is Deputy Director of the Weather Systems and Assessment Program in the Research Applications Laboratory at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado. His research on societal impacts of weather and climate phenomenon, particularly as they relate to surface transportation, uses a mix of physical and social science methods and tools, including actively collaborating with physical and social scientists, and stakeholders. Dr. Drobot's recent research topics include: (1) determining the viability of using vehicles as mobile weather collection platforms, (2) developing decision-support systems to help transportation agencies better plan for and account for weather variability in their daily operations, (3) Assessing what risk factors lead people to make choices in dangerous weather situations, and (4) Creating climate data records.
