Dr. Hultstrand is a Senior Hydrometeorologist at Applied Weather Associates extensive experience in meteorology, hydrology, hydrometeorology, extreme precipitation, and climate change. Dr. Hultstrand has been involved in all aspects of probable maximum precipitation (PMP) development, an expert in extreme storm analyses, regional precipitation frequency analyses, annual exceedance probability (AEP) of PMP analyses, PMP and climate change uncertainty analysis, deriving rainfall areal reduction (ARF) factors, and is a co-developer of the Storm Precipitation Analysis System (SPAS), performed more than 50 climate change analyses, and performed forensic meteorological investigations. Dr. Hultstrand has worked with U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Alpine Hydrology Research Group (AHRG), the Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research (INSTAAR), and the U.S. Forest Service Rocky Mountain Research Station (RMRS). Dr. Hultstrand has a passion for scale and spatial variability in precipitation processes related to hydrology and hydrometeorology. His research and expertise are in modeling the spatial variability and uncertainty in snowpack processes and rainfall as function of terrain parameters and atmospheric energy to better understand and model hydrologic regimes. Dr. Hultstrand has been a guest instructor at Colorado State University, the University of Colorado at Boulder, has published and peer reviewed numerous articles in academic, scientific, and private communities and is a member of numerous related organizations, including AMS, ASDSO, AWRA, NHWC, WSC, AGU, and USSD. Dr. Hultstrand is also an Executive Program Committee Member for the Data Analysis and Modeling group for the National Hydrologic Warning Council and acted as an independent peer-review member for the Journal of Hydrometeorology, Journal of Hydrologic Engineering, and the US Geological Survey Scientific Investigation Reports (SIR).
