Paul Stackhouse (NASA)
Title: Senior Research Scientist
Technical Focus Areas: Climate Science, Applied Science
Mission/Project: GEWEX SRB, CERES (FLASHFlux Working Group), POWER
Study Topics: Satellite based top-of-atmosphere and surface radiative flux variability and budgets; cloud and aerosol radiative properties and effects of fluxes; surface radiative and meteorological measurement analysis, applied sciences renewable energy, sustainable building and agricultural applications
Dr. Stackhouse is the lead scientist of the NASA Surface Radiation Budget (SRB) Project, affliated with the World Climate Research Programme’s (WCRP) Global Energy and Water Exchanges (GEWEX), that produces and assesses long-term surface radiative flux components from satellite radiance, cloud, aerosol and ancillary atmospheric and surface information. Dr. Stackhouse is a science team member of the Clouds and Earth Radiant Energy System project (CERES) where he leads the FLASHFlux (Fast Longwave and Shortwave radiative Fluxes from CERES and MODIS) working group producing global radiative fluxes at low latency. He also leads and/or collaborates in other studies related radiative budgets and climate processes. Dr. Stackhouse leads an NASA-funded Applied Science project to design, customize, and make accessible NASA Earth Science research results (i.e., GEWEX SRB, CERES, GMAO) for the energy-related industries, particularly renewable energy applications through GIS-enabled web services and applications organized under the Prediction of Worldwide (renewable) Energy Resource project (POWER).
