Lynn Keith (Nick) Shay received the B.S. degree from Florida Institute of Technology in 1976. Then he was employed as a Physical Oceanographer by the US Navy Oceanographic Office from 1977 to 1982. Afterwords, he received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the Naval Postgraduate School (1983, 1987), respectively, all in physical oceanography. He directs the Center of Air-Sea Interactions that includes the Upper Ocean Dynamics Laboratory and Wellen Radars (WERA). His research interests include experimental and theoretical investigations of the ocean response and coupled air-sea interactions during tropical cyclones, airborne oceanographic profiling of upper ocean variability, coastal process studies, and high-frequency and satellite radar remote-sensing techniques. He authored over one hundred and eighty peer-reviewed manuscripts, book chapters, and reports. Dr. Shay is a Fellow of NOAA Cooperative Institute of Marine and Atmospheric Science, a Cochair of the NSF/NOAA Prospectus Development Team Hurricanes at Landfall Committee, Cochair of the Air-Sea Interactions in Tropical Cyclones Committee at NOAA’s NCEP. He is a participant in international workshops such as World Meteorological Organization’s International Workshop on Tropical Cyclones, Radar Oceanography, and National Committee (American Meteorological Society’s Tropical Meteorology and Tropical Cyclones Committee, Ocean. US Surface Current Mapping Initiative team, NOAA IOOS Surface Current Mapping Panel), a Chair of the SECOORA committee on high frequency radar remote sensing, and is a Member of AGU, AMS, and The Oceanography Society. Dr. Shay serves as the Cochief Editor of the AMS Journal of Atmospheric and Oceanographic Technology-Oceans and on the Editorial Board of Elsevier’s Dynamics of Atmospheres and Oceans.
