    Dr. Alexei Lyapustin is a Physical Research Scientist at the Climate and Radiation Laboratory. He has been at GSFC since 1997, initially with USRA (1997-1999), then with JCET and GEST UMBC (1999-2011), and as a civil servant since 2011. Alexei 's research interests focus on remote sensing of atmospheric aerosol and land surface environmental parameters (bidirectional reflectance and albedo; snow properties including grain size, albedo and sub-pixel snow fraction) from polar-orbiting and geostationary sensors, analysis of field campaign data, and 1D and 3D radiative transfer theory with gaseous absorption and polarization. Alexei is a member of MODIS and JPSS VIIRS Science Teams, as well as a member of GeoCAPE aerosol working group.

    Dr. Lyapustin holds a M. Sc. in Physics from the Moscow State University, Russia, and Ph. D. degree in Aerospace Remote Sensing from Space Research Institute, Moscow, Russia. For more details please download his CV. Web of Science publications and citation metrics can be found here.

He has been at GSFC since 1997, initially with USRA (1997-1999), then with JCET and GEST UMBC (1999-2011), and as a civil servant since 2011. Alexei 's research interests focus on remote sensing of atmospheric aerosol and land surface environmental parameters (bidirectional reflectance and albedo; snow properties including grain size, albedo and sub-pixel snow fraction) from polar-orbiting and geostationary sensors, analysis of field campaign data, and 1D and 3D radiative transfer theory with gaseous absorption and polarization. Alexei is a member of MODIS and JPSS VIIRS Science Teams, as well as a member of GeoCAPE aerosol working group.

    Dr. Lyapustin holds a M. Sc. in Physics from the Moscow State University, Russia, and Ph. D. degree in Aerospace Remote Sensing from Space Research Institute, Moscow, Russia. For more details please download his CV. Web of Science publications and citation metrics can be found here.
