Gene Brusky is the Science and Operations Officer (SOO) at NWSO Green Bay. Gene's primary responsibility is to bridge the gap between research and operations by initiating and coordinating the transfer of new and emerging weather forecast techniques and technologies from the research community, to the NWS operational forecast environment. On-station technology transfer is accomplished through formal seminars, one-on-one training, computer-based training modules, and local research studies designed to enhance the meteorological knowledge and skill of the NWS Office Green Bay staff.
Gene Brusky is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, earning both his B.S. and M.S. in Atmosphere Sciences. His graduate research dealt with heavy rainfall-producing MCSs.
Gene joined the NWS in 1987 at the Green Bay office. He then went to the NWS Training Center as a Senior Meteorologist Instructor, where he helped develop and teach satellite interpretation, mesoanalysis, WSR-88D product interpretation, gridded data analysis and flash flood forecasting. Gene also traveled to nearly a dozen NWS Offices, where he gave seminars on gridded data applications to operational forecasters.
Gene came back to Green Bay, his hometown, in 1994 as the Science and Operations Officer.
