RESEARCH INTERESTS

Andrew is very interested in new collaborations, so if you find some overlap between your research areas and his, please feel free to get in touch.

Development, validation, and scientific application of aerosol, cloud, and surface property retrievals from passive satellite imaging radiometers (e.g. (A)ATSR, AVHRR, Landsat TM/ETM+, MERIS, MODIS, SeaWiFS, SEVIRI, VIIRS). He works in Dr. Christina Hsu's group, and is involved with her 'Deep Blue' aerosol optical depth retrieval algorithm, among others:
Sun-photometry.
Aerosol microphysical properties.
Statistical techniques.
Radiative transfer codes.

BIOGRAPHY

Andrew Sayer obtained his Ph.D. at the University of Oxford, UK. Following his doctoral thesis, "Aerosol remote sensing using AATSR", he worked as a postdoc in aerosol and cloud remote sensing jointly at Oxford and the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory. In September 2010, Dr. Sayer joined Christina Hsu's group at GSFC to work on aerosol remote sensing. He joined GESTAR in May 2011.
