  • Brief Bio

    Thomas Stanley graduated from the University of Maryland in 2014 with a Masters in Geospatial Information Sciences. In the years since, he has collaborated with other scientists at Goddard Space Flight Center to develop static and dynamic models of landslide hazard at global and regional scales. These models rely on satellite-based estimates of precipitation, as well as remotely sensed observations of other variables.
