Jordan Gerth Portrait

Jordan Gerth

Jordan Gerth is a physical scientist for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Weather Service (NWS) Office of Observations, and an honorary fellow for the Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS) at the Space Science and Engineering Center (SSEC), part of the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

My primary area of interest is the development and transition of meteorological observations and research, particularly involving remote sensing, into the operational weather forecasting environment.

I am currently developing NWS requirements and a mission concept for the next generation of geostationary and polar weather satellites under the GeoXO and NEON programs. I also lead a team of government contractors conducting meteorological research, user engagement, and software development for operational users. I have previously developed atmospheric science software applications and stakeholder communications related to weather satellites.
