Professional Interests

Howard A. Friedman is a meteorologist and deputy director of the Hurricane Research Division/AOML, Miami, Florida.  Mr. Friedman studied at: New York University, where he received his B.A. (Meteorology) from the University College of Arts and Science (1960) and his M.S. (Meteorology) from the Graduate School of Engineering and Science (1967); and at Florida Atlantic University, where he was a member of the Ed.D. Traveling Scholars Program.  From 1960-72, Mr. Friedman was a meteorologist and project coordinator for the Research Flight Facility (now called the NOAA Aircraft Operations Center). He later joined the National Hurricane Center as a tropical analyst and forecaster until 1981, when he returned to the National Hurricane Research Laboratory (currently Hurricane Research Division/AOML).  While at NHC, he served as the focal point for training WMO fellows.  His interest in education continued; he participated in the Ed.D. Traveling Scholars Program at FAU and, has taught aviation meteorology at Miami-Dade Community College, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and Broward College/Aviation Institute, where he is an adjunct professor.  In 1983, Mr. Friedman became a seconded expert to the WMO’s Tropical Cyclone Programme, where he began working on a reference guide for tropical cyclone prone nations.  He is the director of AOML’s Office for Equal Employment Opportunity, a former member of the NOAA EEO and Diversity Councils, the Science Advisory Panel of the Museum of Science and Discovery (Ft. Lauderdale, FL), past chairperson of the AMS Board on School and Popular Meteorological and Oceanographic Education and, the AMS Board on Women and Minorities. Mr. Friedman is the treasurer of the South Florida Federal Executive Board (FEB), a member of the FEB’s Board of Directors and, a founding member of the FEB’s Interagency Mediation Council. He is an active member of the FEB’s SNAP (Shared Neutrals ADR Program) and, a member of NOAA’s ADR and facilitator’s cadres.
