He is the Data Archivist for the Division and this led into his becoming the keeper of its history. He is the author of the recent book published by the AMS: Hurricane Pioneer, Memoirs of Robert Simpson. Neal Dorst was named NOAA’s Employee of the Month for October, 2014! Neal serves crucial roles as HRD’s historian and webmaster and has been their data manager, tape librarian, and archivist for all analog, digital, and film data from the early beginnings of the “U. S. Weather Bureau” hurricane flights in 1956 to the present day. He also led the project to preserve all this archived analog data into a digital state for use by future hurricane research scientists in perpetuity. Neal Dorst, welcome to WeatherBrains!
