Andy Wood works with the University of
Oklahoma (OU) Cooperative Institute for Mesoscale Meteorological Studies
(CIMMS) on assignment with the NWS Warning Decision Training Branch
(WDTB). He earned a B.S. in Atmospheric Science from the University at
Albany (SUNY) and a M.S. in Meteorology from OU. Andy has worked for
CIMMS the last 14 years developing WSR-88D and warning decision-making
training for NWS forecasters. He has led WDTB's Dual-Polarization Radar
Training for NWS Partners outreach efforts for the past four years.
The Warning Decision Training Branch (WDTB) develops and delivers training on the integrated elements of the warning process involving a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)/National Weather Service (NWS) forecast office and its partners. WDTB instructors develop and deliver a variety of in-residence, teletraining, and on-line asynchronous training content to meet this mission. The primary goal of the WDTB is to increase expertise among NOAA/NWS personnel and their core partners so that they can better serve the public during warning operations.
