Assistant Professor, Meteorology
Jason Cordeira teaches both undergraduate and graduate courses in Meteorology. Prior to joining the faculty at Plymouth State, Jason held a fellowship at the Earth Systems Research Laboratory at NOAA in Boulder, CO and was a research meteorologist for a weather software company, EarthRisk Technologies, in San Diego, CA.

My research interests cover a broad range of atmospheric phenomena in the area of synoptic-dynamic meteorology with a focus on short-term climate variability and high-impact weather events. They specifically include: Synoptic-dynamic meteorology, extreme and severe weather events, atmospheric rivers and heavy rainfall, tropical cyclones and their interaction with the midlatitude flow, jet stream variability, and the atmospheric general circulation
