It's a fantastic time to be a meteorologist: Joe Sienkiewicz with the Ocean Prediction Center at NOAA

A Barque, a Brig and a Schooner... Walk into a Bar

Jun 10 2021 • 58 mins

Join Erin as she talks to our favorite weather guy, Mr. Joe Siekiewicz, Chief of the Ocean Applications Branch of the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Ocean Prediction Center (OPC).  Joe and his team are responsible for weather warnings and forecasts for large portions of the North Atlantic and North Pacific. They talk about how he first became fascinated with weather (hint: it involves snow), how being a mariner helped him obtain his job at NOAA, and the role of artificial intelligence in weather forecasting. Joe also very, very patiently answers Erin's questions.

Ships mentioned: Concordia (the tall ship, not the cruise ship), Fantome
