Who is Stanley B. Goldenberg?

Stanley B. Goldenberg is a meteorologist with NOAA/AOML's Hurricane Research Division in Miami, Florida.

Goldenberg received his associates degree from Miami Dade College and a bachelors degree in 1978 and a masters degree in 1980 both in meteorology from Florida State University. One of his main graduate advisors was James O'Brien, one of the world's leading experts on El Niño.

Goldenberg has specialized in climate studies and hurricanes. Stan's hurricane-related research has included developing and implementing significant improvements to one of the earlier numerical hurricane-track prediction models used by the National Hurricane Center and more recently, examining the various climatic factors which influence the variability of hurricane activity in the Atlantic from intraseasonal to multidecadal time scales. He has done extensive research into the physical mechanisms responsible for the connection between El Niño and Atlantic hurricane activity. He was the first author of the research report published in Science establishing the fact that the Atlantic hurricane basin has entered a multidecadal-scale era of greatly increased hurricane activity. The paper concluded that the increase in hurricane activity was due to natural climate fluctuations rather than from any long-term temperature trends. He is one of the lead authors of NOAA's Seasonal Hurricane Outlooks for the Atlantic basin and was a co-recipient of NOAA's Bronze Medal for that work. Mr. Goldenberg has participated in numerous research flights into and around hurricanes on NOAA's WP-3D and Gulfstream IV aircraft, including flights into Hurricane Katrina as it made landfall on the Louisiana/Mississippi coast.
