Marty Ralph, an AMS Member, and a Fellow of the AMS, is Chief of the Wather Cycle Branch in Physical Sciences Division of NOAA's Earth System Research Laboratory in Boulder, Colorado. Dr. Ralph is a research meteorologist who has studied mesoscale and synoptic scale phenomena and how they are affected by climate variability. A key area of interest is exploring how to best observe the atmosphere, with an emphasis on advancing the physical understanding of extreme precipitation processes as well as related hydrometeorological predictions and climate projections. He is currently the Program Manager of NOAA's Weather & Water/Science, Technology and Infusion Program. Dr. Ralph is a Research Associate at Scripps Institution of Oceanography. He has a BS degree in meteorology (University of Arizona, 1984), and MS and PhD degrees in atmospheric sciences (University of California, 1987 and 1991).
