Alexander Marshak

Deputy Project Scientist for the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) satellite mission
Climate and Radiation Laboratory (Code 613), NASA/GSFC

Dr. A. Marshak conducts research on remote sensing of clouds, aerosols and blowing snow, on cloud-aerosol interaction,  and on many aspects of atmospheric radiative transfer. He is the Deputy Project Scientist for the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) satellite mission, and a member of the CALIPSO and MODIS Science Teams, and the International Radiation Commission.
