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 Nino 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 research in a number of peer-reviewed Journals, including Climate Research, Climatic Change, Bulletin of the American Meteorology Society, the International Journal of Climatology, and Weather and Forecasting.
Dr. Goodrich developed the curriculum for the B.S. Meteorology degree program and teaches courses such as Dynamic Meteorology I and II, Meteorological Instruments, and Weather Analysis and Forecasting. He has served as the program leader for WKU Meteorology since 2008. He worked as a meteorologist for AccuWeather, Inc., for three years after receiving his B.S. in Applied Meteorology from Purdue University.
