John Frye

I began teaching at UW-Whitewater in the Fall 2011. I have two degrees from Ball State University: a B.S. in Journalism (Photojournalism Concentration) in 1999 and a M.S. in Geography in 2004. I received my Ph.D. from the Department of Geography at the University of Georgia in 2008.

My research interests are in the fields of meteorology and climatology. My main interests are with severe weather in all forms. In particular I focus on land-surface properties that lead to enhancements of storms and also analyzing long-term climatology of severe weather events. I also conduct research on teleconnections and their role on precipitation and severe weather patterns. Lastly, I also am involved with a research group with colleagues at other universities examining non-convective high wind events (NCWE) associated with passing mid-latitude cyclones in the United States and around the world.

I regularly teach the following classes: Introduction to Weather and Climate, Physical Geography, Human-Environmental Problems, Meteorology and Climatology, and Human and Climate Interactions. I am also serving as the faculty advisor to the UW-Whitewater WeatherHawks and Whitewater Geographers Association (WGA).
