Jason Dunion is a research meteorologist at The Cooperative Institute For Marine And Atmospheric Studies at the University of Miami's Rosenstein School. He specializes in satellite remote sensing of hurricanes and has led the development of several new satellite products for monitoring tropical cyclones, Saharan dust storms, and the diurnal cycle of hurricanes. His research has also included reconstructing wind fields of historical landfalling hurricanes, developing new climatological atmospheric soundings for the North Atlantic, and leading the development of a new scheme (the TC Genesis Index) for prediciting tropical cyclone genesis. Dunion has acted as chief scientist on several Hurricane Hunter research missions using NOAA’s high altitude jet and P-3 Orions and has flown on over 50 hurricane hunter flights. He also has served as Director of the Hurricane Research Division’s Field Program.
