Bravo to David Gochis, UA HAS alumnus and NCAR scientist, who has been named a 2019 American Meteorological Society Fellow for his "outstanding contribution to atmospheric and hydrologic sciences through his career." David is currently the NCAR principal investigator on the WRF-Hydro Modeling System, an open-source community model that predicts streamflow and surface hydrology variables across the continental United States operating as the NOAA National Water Model.

Gochis, who has presented seminars, guest lectured, and served on graduate exams in the HAS department, completed his Ph.D. in hydrology under the supervision of recently retired W.J. Jim Shuttleworth, in 2002.

Congratulations, David!
