Will Shaw, an AMS Member, is an Asscoiate Director of the Atmospheric Science and Global Change Division at DOE's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Richland, Washington. In this capacitiy he manages the Atmospheric Chemistry and Meteorology Group. Dr. Shaw is an atmospheric scientist who has worked primarily in the area of turbulence and the atmospheric boundary layer. His early work focused on the structure of marine atmospheric boundary layer, including atmospheric circulations that develop around ocean fronts and at the edge of the arctic sea ice (known as the marginal ice zone). Prior to joining PNNL, he was an associate professor at the Naval Postgraduate School. After joining PNNL in 1990, his interests turned more toward boundary layers over land, with particular emphasis on effects of land-use variations and complex terrain on boundary layer circulations and turbulence. Dr. Shaw's work has emphasized analysis of atmospheric observations. He he has broad experience with measurement systems ranging from fast-response turbulence sensors, to airborne measurement systems, to remote sensing devices such as sodar and wind profiling radar. Dr. Shaw was one of the co-organizers of the 2008 DOE Workshop on Research Needs for Wind Resource Characterization. He has authored or co-authored more than 40 publications in peer-reviewed journals. His PhD degree from the University of Washington is in atmospheric sciences.

Please Note:

Through 30 September 2011 Dr. Shaw is on assignment to DOE headquarters in the Wind and Water Power Program of the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy. His current contact information is given above. Beginning 1 October 2011 Dr. Shaw resumes his regular role at PNNL, and his contact information will revert to that shown below on his business card.
