History of Methane and CO2 Mapping with AVIRIS
Webinar Speaker: Robert O. Green, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, NASA
About the Webinar
The webinar gives an overview of the History of Methane and CO2 Mapping with AVIRIS. It’s an interesting story showing what can be done with high SNR imaging spectrometers working with comparatively coarse spectral resolution.
Dr. Robert O. Green is the Principal Investigator of the Earth Surface Mineral Dust Source Investigation (EMIT) that in 2018 was selected by NASA to fly on the International Space Station.
He is also the Director of the Microdevices Laboratory and a Senior Research Scientist at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology. For more than 25 years, his research has used advanced imaging spectrometer instrumentation to test hypotheses and pursue science investigations on Earth, Mars, Moon, and through the solar system. He was the Instrument Scientist for the Moon Mineralogy Mapper (M3) that discovered water/hydroxyl on the illuminated surface. He is the Instrument Scientist for the Mapping Imaging Spectrometer for Europa (MISE) that will address key science questions related to habitability for NASA’s Europa Clipper mission.
