Richard Turner


Co-leader, Weather & Wildfire

Richard is a research scientist in the Meteorology and Remote Sensing group at NIWA.

His research interests lie in the observation and modelling of weather, with a strong focus on applying this science to impacts of weather-related hazards, particularly wind on buildings and power networks.

He has gained additional expertise in using these sophisticated wind and weather models to study the atmospheric dispersal of volcanic ash, insect pests, myrtle rust spores, and diseases like foot-and-mouth.
