  • Brief Bio

    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 was initially employed under the GEST cooperative agreement, and is presently employed under the follow-on GESTAR cooperative agreement.

    Research Interests

    Aerosol remote sensing

    Dr. Sayer's primary research interests are related to aerosol remote sensing.

    This includes development, validation, and scientific application of aerosol (as well as cloud and surface property retrievals) from passive satellite imaging radiometers (e.g. (A)ATSR, AVHRR, Landsat TM/ETM+, MERIS, MODIS, SeaWiFS, SEVIRI, VIIRS). He is presently involved in the 'Deep Blue' aerosol project, led by Dr. Christina Hsu. Related to this, he is also interested in Sun-photometry, aerosol microphysical/optical properties, statistical techniques, and radiative transfer.
