    Joel Susskind received his A.B. from Columbia College in 1964 and his Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from the University of California at Berkeley in 1968, where he did experimental and theoretical research in laboratory microwave spectroscopy. He had post-doctoral positions at the University of Minnesota and Florida State University, doing instrumental and theoretical research in high-resolution infra-red laboratory spectroscopy. He is currently a Senior Scientist in the Laboratory for Atmospheres at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, where he has worked since 1977 doing research in infra-red and microwave remote sensing. Dr. Susskind has been a member of the AIRS Science Team since its inception and is conducting research aimed at improving products derived from AIRS observations and using AIRS sounding products to further improve numerical weather prediction as well as to study climate processes and trends. Dr. Susskind served as NASA Polar Orbiting Environmental Satellite Project Scientist, the NPP Sounder Scientist, and the HES Sounder Scientist. He received the NASA Exceptional Scientific Achievement Medal in 1985 and 2011 and the Goddard Space Flight Center Exceptional Achievement Award in 1988.

    Brief Bio

    Joel Susskind received his A.B. from Columbia College in 1964 and his Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from the University of California at Berkeley in 1968, where he did experimental and theoretical research in laboratory microwave spectroscopy. He had post-doctoral positions at the University of Minnesota and Florida State University, doing instrumental and theoretical research in high-resolution infra-red laboratory spectroscopy. He is currently a Senior Scientist in the Laboratory for Atmospheres at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, where he has worked since 1977 doing research in infra-red and microwave remote sensing. Dr. Susskind has been a member of the AIRS Science Team since its inception and is conducting research aimed at improving products derived from AIRS observations and using AIRS sounding products to further improve numerical weather prediction as well as to study climate processes and trends. Dr. Susskind served as NASA Polar Orbiting Environmental Satellite Project Scientist, the NPP Sounder Scientist, and the HES Sounder Scientist. He received the NASA Exceptional Scientific Achievement Medal in 1985 and 2011 and the Goddard Space Flight Center Exceptional Achievement Award in 1988.
