Peter Minnett
University of Miami

Dr. Minnett's research interests include remote sensing of oceanic and atmospheric variables from satellite-borne and ship-borne sensors, primarily in the infrared. In particular, the retrieval of accurate sea-surface temperatures from space. His interests in the sea surface temperature extend to the study of the small scale physical processes at the interface, including laboratory experiments. In addition to his involvement with MODIS, he is also a member of the Validation Team of the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) and has been involved in the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM). He also serves on the NASA Science Team for the NPOESS Preparatory Project (NPP) and the Science Advisory Group of the Advanced Along-Track Scanning Radiometer (AASTR) and is a member of the Science Team of the Global Ocean Data Assimilation Experiment High-Resolution Sea Surface Temperature Pilot Project (GHRSST-PP).

Research Area:
Dr Minnett's research with MODIS focuses on the accurate retrieval of Skin Sea Surface Temperature, which involves careful compensation of the effects of the intervening atmosphere.
