    Gerhard Meister received the diploma and Ph.D. degrees in physics from the University of Hamburg, Germany, in 1996 and 2000, respectively. He worked for Futuretech Corp. from 2000 to 2010 in the Ocean Biology Processing  Group at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. Since 2010, he is a member of the NASA Ocean Ecology Branch. He is a member of the MERIS Quality Working Group (ESA) and the Sentinel-3 Validation Team (ESA/EUMETSAT). His main focus is the calibration and characterization of satellite based ocean color sensors such as MODIS, SeaWiFS, and VIIRS. He was the Principal Investigator for the Instrument Incubator Project (funded by NASA's Earth Science and Technology Office from 2010 to 2013) for the Ocean Radiometer for Carbon Assessment (ORCA). Since 2015, he is the Instrument Scientist for the Ocean Color Instrument for NASA's PACE mission.

    Current Projects

    Instrument Scientist for the PACE mission

    The PACE (Pre-Aerosol, Cloud, and ocean Ecosystems) mission is currently in pre-Phase A and expected to enter Phase-A in June 2016. Gerhard Meister has been the Instrument Scientist for the PACE mission since early 2015. The main instrument of the PACE mission is an ocean color radiometer. Secondary instruments (a polarimeter, a coastal camera) are being considered as well.

    Education

    Gerhard Meister received the diploma and Ph.D. degrees in physics from the University of Hamburg, Germany, in 1996 and 2000, respectively.
