    Lena Iredell received a BS in meterology from SUNY Oswego and a MS in forest micrometeorology from West Virginia University. Her area of expertise includes the development of quality control methodologies, development of level-3 gridding algorithms, statistical and graphical analysis, and validation of retrieved surface and atmospheric products from the AIRS/AMSU and TOVS instruments. She supported the atmospheric sounding research activities of the Sounder Research Team. Currently Lena works for the Goddard Earth Sciences Data Information Services Center.
