Dr. Greg Goodrich joined the faculty at WKU in 2005 after completing his Ph.D. from Arizona State University. His research focuses on how multi-decadal climate teleconnections such as the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO) and the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation (AMO) influence precipitation patterns associated with interannual teleconnections such as the El NiÃ±o-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) and the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO). He is especially interested in the impact of climate teleconnections on snowfall in the eastern United States. Dr. Goodrich has published his technical research in a number of peer-reviewed Journals, including Climate Research, Climatic Change, Bulletin of the American Meteorology Society, and Weather and Forecasting. His non-technical writings on the influence of weather on sports have been mentioned on the cable show “Weather World” as well as ESPN.com, Hardball Times, the Canton (OH) Rep, and several sports blogs.
Dr. Goodrich helped to develop the curriculum for the new B.S. Meteorology degree program and teaches courses such as Synoptic Meteorology, Dynamic Meteorology, and Weather Analysis and Forecasting. He worked as a meteorologist for AccuWeather, Inc., for three years after receiving his B.S. in Applied Meteorology from Purdue University.
