About Professor Miller
Samuel Miller received a diploma with honors in weather forecasting from Chanute Air Force Base (Rantoul, Ill.), a B.S. in physics summa cum laude, an M.S. in Earth Science-Oceanography, and a Ph.D. in Earth Sciences from the University of New Hampshire. His research interests include mesoscale meteorology (especially coastal circulation, air-sea interaction, and air pullution dispersion) and practical forecasting problems (such as precipitation type and local winds).
Prior to joining the faculty at Plymouth State University in 2005, he worked as a meteorologist for the U.S. National Weather Service (NOAA), Alaskan Region, Anchorage Forecast Office. At UNH, he served as an instructor/lecturer, a research scientist for the Climate Change Research Center, and a research scientist/programmer for the Ocean Process Analysis Laboratory. He worked as weather observer for the Pease Air National Guard Base Weather Station (Portsmouth, N.H.) and as a weather forecaster for the U.S. Airforce at Incirlik Air Base (Adana, Turkey); Plattsburgh AFB (N.Y.); Travis AFB (Calif.); and Loring AFB (Maine). Miller has and continues to serve as a meteorology and physics consultant and software developer for the C-10 Research and Education Foundation (Newburyport, Mass.).
