Ethan Gutmann is a hydrometeorologist in the Research Applications Lab (RAL) at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR). He received his MS (2002) and PhD (2008) from the University of Colorado in Remote Sensing and Hydrology, and his BA in Geoscience and Computer Science from Williams College (1999). His research focuses on water resources in the Western United States with particular emphasis on regional climate impacts and snow hydrology. Dr. Gutmann is the chair of the AMS Mountain Meteorology committee and the lead scientist and developer of the Intermediate Complexity Atmospheric Research model (ICAR). He has worked closely with water resource managers at the US Bureau of Reclamation and the Army Corps of Engineers, as well as with scientists at NASA, NOAA, and universities around the world.

Outside of science, Dr. Gutmann is also an avid outdoor enthusiast and is enjoying introducing his kids to backpacking, climbing, skiing, and more. His passion for the outdoors has taken him to remote mountains around the world. This has furthered an interest in snow related processes in high altitude regions, and inspiring his current research in snow modeling and measurement, as well as atmospheric modeling of precipitation and turbulence in the mountains.
