DURHAM, N.H. – After spending five years in the desert of

degree in meteorology from Penn State University before earning
his master’s and Ph.D. in geography from the University of
“In my new role as New Hampshire state climatologist, I look
forward to drawing on my personal experiences with weather and climate
events in the Northeast,”. He anticipates that his research
interests, which include analyzing climate variations on decadal
time scales and investigating the impact of urbanization on weather
patterns, will readily translate to New Hampshire and New England.
He is particularly interested in the effect of climate variability
on water resources, agricultural production and air quality.
Brown is recognized as the New Hampshire state climatologist by
the American Association of State Climatologists and the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. He can be reached at (603)
