Bolten Receives a 2018 Arthur S. Flemming Award

06.04.2019

L to R: Dr. John Bolten with Mr. Lawrence Friedl, director of the Applied Sciences Program within the Earth Science Division at NASA Headquarters.

Congratulations to Dr. John Bolten of the Hydrological Sciences Laboratory for his 2018 Arthur S. Flemming Award. Named in honor of Arthur S. Flemming, who served in government for more than six decades spanning seven administrations and including service as the secretary of health, education and welfare under President Dwight D. Eisenhower, awardees are recognized for excellence in federal service. Dr. Bolten was recognized in the category of "Applied Science & Engineering" for his work in applying satellite remote sensing, land surface modeling and data assimilation to water resources management, agricultural forecasting and flood monitoring. Dr. Bolten is a Physical Scientist in the Hydrological Sciences Laboratory and also the Associate Program Manager for NASA’s Applied Sciences – Water Resources Program.

Overview

The Hydrological Sciences Laboratory examines the role of water in the Earth system. Laboratory researchers strive to better understand, quantify, and analyze the hydrological cycle and to measure hydrological processes in order to improve prediction of the response of global hydrology to anthropogenic and/or natural climate change.

Special emphasis is placed on land surface hydrological processes and their interactions with the atmosphere. Laboratory scientists develop remote-sensing and modeling techniques to investigate how the various components of the hydrological cycle interact over a broad range of spatial and temporal scales.
