  • Brief Bio

    Dr. Matthew Rodell is Chief of the Hydrological Sciences Laboratory at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) in Greenbelt, Maryland. The Lab comprises about 35 scientists involved in remote sensing and numerical modeling of the terrestrial water cycle and related applications. Dr. Rodell is a member of the science team for NASA's Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) and GRACE Follow On missions and contributes to the formulation of future gravimetry missions. He leads the Global Land Data Assimilation System (GLDAS) project, which produces high resolution fields of land surface states (e.g., soil moisture and temperature) and fluxes (e.g., evapotranspiration) by integrating satellite and ground based observations within sophisticated numerical models of land surface water and energy cycle processes. He also leads projects focused on mapping, monitoring, and forecasting groundwater storage changes, droughts, and floods. Dr. Rodell is an Editor of the Journal of Hydrometeorology and has previously served as an Associate Editor for the Journal of Hydrology, Chair of the Hydrology Program for the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting, and a leader of various national and international scientific working groups. He received a Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) in 2006, a NASA/GSFC Earth Science Achievement Award in 2007, a Robert H. Goddard Award for Exceptional Achievement in Science in 2011, and an Arthur S. Flemming Award for outstanding federal service in the area of basic science 2015. He has more than 100 peer-reviewed publications in journals that include Nature, Science, Water Resources Research, and the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society. He holds a B.S. in environmental science from the College of William and Mary and a Ph.D. in geological sciences from the University of Texas at Austin.

    Brief Bio

    Dr. Matthew Rodell is Chief of the Hydrological Sciences Laboratory at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) in Greenbelt, Maryland. The Lab comprises about 35 scientists involved in remote sensing and numerical modeling of the terrestrial water cycle and related applications. Dr. Rodell is a member of the science team for NASA's Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) and GRACE Follow On missions and contributes to the formulation of future gravimetry missions. He leads the Global Land Data Assimilation System (GLDAS) project, which produces high resolution fields of land surface states (e.g., soil moisture and temperature) and fluxes (e.g., evapotranspiration) by integrating satellite and ground based observations within sophisticated numerical models of land surface water and energy cycle processes. He also leads projects focused on mapping, monitoring, and forecasting groundwater storage changes, droughts, and floods. Dr. Rodell is an Editor of the Journal of Hydrometeorology and has previously served as an Associate Editor for the Journal of Hydrology, Chair of the Hydrology Program for the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting, and a leader of various national and international scientific working groups. He received a Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) in 2006, a NASA/GSFC Earth Science Achievement Award in 2007, a Robert H. Goddard Award for Exceptional Achievement in Science in 2011, and an Arthur S. Flemming Award for outstanding federal service in the area of basic science 2015. He has more than 100 peer-reviewed publications in journals that include Nature, Science, Water Resources Research, and the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society. He holds a B.S. in environmental science from the College of William and Mary and a Ph.D. in geological sciences from the University of Texas at Austin.
