Adjunct Professor, NASA

Eric Vermote received his Ph.D in 1990 in Atmospheric Optics from the University of Lille, France. He is currently a Research Physical Scientist at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center's Terrestrial Information Systems Laboratory . His research interests are in radiative transfer modeling, vicarious calibration, atmospheric correction, aerosol retrieval, and the generation of climate data record for terrestrial studies. Dr. Vermote is a member of the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer Science Team, the NASA National Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite System Preparatory Project Science Team for the VIIRS instrument, the Landsat Data Continuity Mission Science Team, and is responsible for the atmospheric correction over land surfaces in the visible-to-middle infrared.
