Aaron B. Wilson is an Atmospheric Scientist at The Ohio State University (OSU), holding a joint appointment as a Principal Investigator at the Byrd Polar and Climate Research Center (BPCRC) and Assistant Professor, Ag Weather with OSU Extension-the outreach arm of the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences. Using state-of-the-art weather and climate models, Aaron's research focuses on weather and climate across diverse environments - from the ice-covered Arctic and Antarctica to the tropical influences on global circulation and extreme weather and climate change in Ohio. His duties with OSU Extension allow him to connect his love of weather and climate with the agricultural community throughout Ohio, to provide data when needed, and increase the understanding of how changing climate is impacting farmers across the state. He feels strongly in providing education and outreach, acknowledging that all sectors have expertise to bring to the table in order to build resilience to changing climate and make informed decisions for the future.
