Expertise Profile

Mr. Rosenthal has been involved in meteorology for 30 years and is a Research Leader at Battelle involved in the following areas: air pollution transport; Navy meteorological support; site selections and characterization; and counter-terrorism/homeland security applications of meteorological data, including planning, supporting and developing concepts of operation for blue/red training exercises. He has also worked with applications and effects of weather and atmospheric and marine conditions.  For example, Mr. Rosenthal has been involved in assessments of sea conditions as they pertain to storm activity, and more generally, how the atmosphere and ocean work together to produce storms.  Other related work of his consists of identification and integration of essential meteorological/atmospheric factors which have a major influence on emergency response decision-making, and risks from natural disasters.  His interests also include the use of satellite imagery to identify cross-equatorial and cross-ocean transport of moisture which may trigger storm activity many thousands of miles away from the source region.
