... Headquarters, Scott Air Force Base, during 1974-1975 and received the Award for Meritorious Civilian Service for his contributions to the AWS radar program. He served on the Executive Committee of the International Commission on Clouds and Precipitation from 1988 to 1996, as director of the South Dakota Space Grant Consortium from 1991 to 1996, and as a member of the National Research Council's National Weather Service (NWS)

... Observing Facilities Advisory Panel, the AMS Committee on Severe Local Storms, and the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research's (UCAR) Scientific Program Evaluation Committee, and he is a past member of the AMS Board of Meteorological and Oceanographic Education in Universities.
From page 78...
... Dr. Keeler is an adjunct professor at Colorado State University, teaching portions of meteorological radar courses, and he has taught in-depth remote sensing courses within NCAR and at foreign weather services.

... Aviation Weather Development Program, the FAA Terminal Doppler Weather Radar Program, and a national icing/winter storm research program. Previously, he directed NCAR activities associated with the Low-Level Windshear Alert System (LLWAS)
From page 80...
... In the area of radar remote sensing, he originated and furthered the development of the concepts of differential reflectivity ZDR and specific differential phase shift KDP. These and other related polarimetric measurements have revolutionized the field of radar meteorology by improving radar's ability to quantify rainfall rates, detect hail, and discriminate between water and ice phase hydrometeors, and they have advanced the understanding of cloud physics.
From page 81...
... Dr. Wilson's previous contributions to FAA weather products include the development of two LLWAS algorithms, development of a portion of the TDWR microburst algorithm, and development of the ITWS "ridded winds algorithm.
