Mark Morrissey, Ph.D., serves as a Professor at the School of Meteorology at the University of Oklahoma. His research interests included wind and solar power assessment problems, the application of random function theory to meteorological and climate problems, especially in the analysis of tropical meteorology and climate with the objective of seasonal prediction of climate conditions and the designing of verification methods for satellite precipitation algorithms. He is also active in developing stochastic rainfall models and methods of characterizing sampling error from meteorological time/space averages. He received his Ph.D. degree in meteorology in 1986 from the University of Hawaii. His notable accomplishments include the establishment of the Environmental Verification and Analysis Center (EVAC). He was its Director. He (co)authored 50 refereed publications and was the first Pacific Island Global Climate Observing Systems (PIGCOS) Coordinator, headquartered in Apia Samoa from 2004 to 2005.
