Kara Garcia

Originally from Virginia, Kara now lives in Colorado and attends Front Range Community College (FRCC). She is currecntly exploring which courses she needs to obtain an AS with a Degree of Designation in Biology.

Henry Arndt

Henry is a native of Fort Collins and currently attends Front Range Community College. He is a foodie and loves to fish. His greatest passion is the ocean, and he loves to research it, watch the waves, swim in it, and learn the absolutely extraordinary facts about it. His favorite book is The Handy Ocean Answer Book!

Ryan Webb

Ryan is interested in a variety of research topics including representing the snow as a porous media, vadose zone hydrology, hydrological impacts of forest fires, and water resources in developing countries.

Kristy Tiampo

Dr. Tiampo’s research focuses on understanding the processes that govern natural and anthropogenic hazards. These studies incorporate large quantities of remote sensing data. Her team investigates the implications and consequences of hazards such as earthquakes, volcanoes, landslides, groundwater extraction, and induced seismicity on infrastructure and society. 

Ted Stets

Ted’s areas of expertise include surface water (non-marine), surface water quality, water quality, water budget, and the effects of human impacts upon them.

Tasha Snow

Tasha’s research interests include high latitude ocean, cryosphere, and climate change. Her PhD research focuses on satellite remote sensing of ice sheets and ice sheet-ocean interactions. Tasha is a veteran of the US Navy.

Patrick Sheridan

Dr. Sheridan’s primary responsibility is to oversee the operation and data flow of the NOAA ESRL Global Federated Aerosol Network. The goals of this surface aerosol monitoring program are to characterize means, variability, and trends of climate-forcing properties of different types of aerosols, and to understand the factors that control these properties.

Richard Saltus

Richard works with the NOAA GEOMAG team on an update to the EMAG2 global magnetic anomaly compilation.  The goal is to improve the resolution and reliability of the compilation to improve its applicability to geologic and tectonic interpretation.

Manoj Nair

Manoj is part of the NOAA GEOMAG team. His research interests include electromagnetic induction in Earth and oceans by external magnetic sources, electric and magnetic signals generated by the motion of sea water, equatorial ionospheric currents and fields, crowdsourcing Earth's magnetic data and analysis of ground and satellite magnetic data.

John Ogren

John is responsible for learning, training and development for all employees in the NWS in the areas of Science, Service, Electronics & IT and Employee Development.
