Dana Uden
I started out in renewable energy, specifically solar energy resource modeling for a large clean  energy developer. I transitioned to verification of meteorological products upon arriving at GSL.  Aviation weather products are the primary focus of the quality assessments, but I’ve also done  work on boundary layer verification of the HRRR. In addition to my research and analyst duties,  I supervise the CIRA employees in the Forecast Impact and Quality Assessment Services  Branch.
