Dr. Smith spend the summer of 1985 at NASA/GISS doing research for his MS and also was UCAR post-doctoral fellow at NOAA/CPC (1990-91) and then was hired by NOAA/CPC 1991. Transferred to NOAA/NESDIS in 2000, first at NCEI and then at star since 2007. Dr. Thomas Smith work has mostly involved data analysis, including model-output and observations, for better understanding large-scale climate variations. Some analyses contributed to have also been used to help weather and climate prediction.
