William Ward is a professor in the Department of Physics at the University of New Brunswick. His research is on the dynamics of the middle/upper atmospheres. This includes the development of interferometric methods for the remote sensing of wind, temperature and constituents, the analysis of ground based and satellite observations, and the development and interpretation of models (including the extended Canadian Middle Atmosphere Model (CMAM)). Of particular interest are waves (gravity waves, planetary waves and tides) and their role in coupling various regions of the atmosphere.
He has been involved in the Polar Environment Atmospheric Research Laboratory since its inception and is mentor for several optical instruments providing information on the dynamics in the polar mesopause region.
