    Maksym Petrenko is a Research Associate for Earth System Science Interdisciplinary Center (ESSIC) on-site at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Climate and Radiation Branch. Maksym joined ESSIC in 2009 after a PhD in Computer Science from Wayne State University, Detroit. His B.S. (2003) and M.S. (2005) degrees are also in Computer Science and were received from the National University of Kiev-Mohyla Academy, Kiev, Ukraine. In his PhD studies and prior projects, Dr. Petrenko focused on data analysis and effective ways for expanding complex software systems with new features. With this experience, he joined Dr. Charles Ichoku at NASA to work on the Mutli-sensor Aerosol Products Sampling System (MAPPS) that seeks to provide an approach and a unified framework for inter-comparison and validation of aerosol measurements from different sensors and instruments, including ground-based, airborne, and spaceborne, obtained at different locations and time around the globe.

    Current Projects

    Integrated validation, intercomparison, and analysis of aerosol products from multiple satellites

    The project involves integrated validation, intercomparision and analysis of large-scale (15 TB) aerosol data from multiple ground-based and satellite sensors, including AERONET network of ground-based sensors, MODIS sensors onboard Terra and Aqua, MISR onboard Terra, OMI onboard Aura, POLDER onboard Parasol, CALIOP onboard Calipso, SeaWiFS onboard SeaStar, and VIIRS onboard NPP. Based on the results of this analysis, we established and maintain a large-scale Multi-sensor Aerosol Products Sampling System (MAPSS) database of spaceborne aerosol measurements collocated with ground-based observations from AERONET. Further, we created a collection of web-based NASA portals that support easy access and customizable interactive analysis of the MAPSS collocated data. Please read more at the following links:
