SF Bay Area Meteorology Jobs
In recent weeks a number of jobs for meteorologists in the SF Bay Area have crossed my desk that I thought I would share. See below.
Jan Null, CCM

National Weather Service - Intern (Monterey and other locales)
The NWS office in Monterey has an intern opening! This is a great chance for anyone who wants a job in the NWS since you will get exposure to working multiple desks plus outreach and computer programming. If there are any questions, let me know. https://www.usajobs.gov/GetJob/ViewDetails/423648100
This position is located in the National Weather Service Division of the National Ocean and Atmospheric Administartion.
We are currently recruiting for several positions at Sonoma Technology, Inc.
We are currently working on some very exciting projects; here are some examples:
Air Quality Forecasting and Public Outreach. STI meteorologists issue daily weather and air quality forecasts for over a dozen cities across the U.S. These forecasts are disseminated to air quality agency websites and local and national media. STI meteorologists also develop forecast tools and provide forecast training to agencies worldwide.
Working with the U.S. EPA to Expand AirNow-International.
AirNow-International is a suite of state-of-the-art software programs based on the highly successful AirNow program (http://www.airnow.gov/). AirNow-I facilitates air quality management and promotes public awareness of air quality issues. The first implementation of the system was completed for Shanghai, China, in advance of the 2010 World Expo<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=joljzDtA7FA>. It has since been expanded to other parts of China and Mexico.
Weather Research for Wind Energy. STI scientists are working with U.C. Davis to improve meteorological forecasts to support real-time wind energy production decisions. As part of this project, STI staff have deployed and are now operating instruments (sodars, ceilometers, radar wind profilers, and microwave radiometers) to continuously measure meteorology in the lower troposphere. Data from these instruments will be used to improve the physical parameterizations in the weather forecast models and improve initial conditions for input into the model.
Air Sensor Monitoring Program for Kids. STI is developing the Kids Making Sense<http://www.kidsmakingsense.org/> program, which enables youth to perform air quality measurements and empowers them to drive positive change in their communities.
I look forward to any questions or comments you may have about our company, projects, and staff.
