Isaac Moradi, a research scientist and lead of the ESSIC numerical modeling and data assimilation affinity group, has been appointed as a member of the AMS Radio Frequency Allocation Committee, bringing invaluable expertise in microwave and radar observations and their role in weather predictions. The committee focuses on coordinating radio frequency spectrum management crucial to weather, water, and climate services. It serves a pivotal role in evaluating how spectrum policy changes might impact meteorological data collection and distribution. Moradi’s career, marked by advancements in data assimilation and numerical modeling through enhancing radiative transfer models, observations error analysis, improving the data assimilation systems for assimilating these observations, and developing advanced calibration techniques for satellite data, aligns seamlessly with the committee’s mission.

Isaac Moradi is the co-author of a paper entitled “The Community Radiative Transfer Model (CRTM): Community-Focused Collaborative Model Development Accelerating Research to Operations” published in Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society.
ESSIC/CISESS Scientist Isaac Moradi has a new article from his JPSS PGRR project coming out in the December 27th issue of the Journal of Geophysical Research: Atmospheres.
ESSIC /CISESS Research Scientist Isaac Moradi was recently elected as a member of the University of Maryland Research Council. The Research Council is task force deployed by the University Senate that provides guidance to the UMD Vice President for research on matters such as:
ESSIC/CISESS Research Scientist Isaac Moradi has been elected to the University State Senate as one of the Professional-Track Faculty members. The University Senate, composed of faculty, staff, students, and administrators, is one of the largest and most influential governing bodies at the University of Maryland. As a member of the senate, Moradi will help advise the University President on campus policy matters and concerns, including education, budget, personnel, campus-community, long range plans, facilities, and faculty, staff and student affairs.
Isaac Moradi (ESSIC/GMAO) presented a talk entitled “Assimilation of microwave radiances over the rainbands of tropical cyclones” in the WCRP-WWRP Joint Symposium on Data Assimilation and Reanalysis.
ESSIC/CISESS Associate Research Scientist Isaac Moradi is the PI of a proposal selected by NASA ROSES to assimilate measurements from active spaceborne radars into NASA GEOS model. The project will benefit from CloudSat CPR and GPM DPR observations and will be conducted in collaboration with Co-Is from NASA Global Modeling and Assimilation Office and the Mesoscale Atmospheric Processes Laboratory.
ESSIC/CISESS Associate Research Scientist Isaac Moradi is convening and chairing three sessions at the American Geophysical Union Fall meeting, occurring virtually this year due to COVID-19. The sessions are “Data Assimilation, Reanalysis, and Observing System Simulation Experiments I”, “Data Assimilation, Reanalysis, and Observing System Simulation Experiments II Posters”, and “Calibration and Validation of Satellite Earth Observation Systems I Posters”.
