Dr. Andrew M. Badger is an Associate Scientist with Goddard Earth Sciences Technology and Research (GESTAR) at the Hydrological Sciences Lab at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. His research interests primarily focus on aspects of the hydrologic cycle, including modeling hydrologic extremes (floods and droughts), snow-based streamflow prediction methods, coupling satellite observations with modeled products to estimate evaporation from the soil, investigating how land-surface changes impact the water cycle and land-atmosphere interactions, and validation of satellite precipitation estimates. Previously, Dr. Badger has been affiliated with the Natural Environments Branch at NASA Marshall Space Flight Center, the University of Colorado-Boulder and the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES). Dr. Badger received his Ph.D. in Climate Dynamics from George Mason University with a focus on large-scale land-use change and land-surface model development. He received his B.S. in Meteorology from North Carolina State University.
