Experience

Karl Zeller recently taught the Being A Leader course as an experimental for-credit
course at Colorado State University in Ft. Collins CO. He is also a science consultant
working on climate research and a landlord. Prior to 2008 he spent about forty years
working in the fields of meteorology and air pollution for the Environmental Protection
Agency, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, The Bureau of Land
Management, the USDA Forest Service and for private consulting firms. He was a part-
time Air Force Reservist Weather Forecaster for 26 years. He has a PhD in Boundary
Layer Fluid Mechanics from Colorado State University. Karl was an American
Meteorological Society Certified Consulting Meteorologist for ~30 years. As a youth he
milked cows as a farm boy and worked summers in a NJ paper mill. His hobby is
undisciplined meteorology.
