Sergio Sejas (Contractor)
Title: Research Scientist
Technical Focus Area: Climate Science
Study Topics: Sea ice and snow angular distribution models., radiation and climate in the cryosphere, climate feedbacks.
Dr. Sergio Sejas has extensive research experience using energy budget decompositions to understand process contributions to surface warming and using radiative transfer theory to understand the radiative impacts of increasing carbon dioxide. Currently, he is responsible for the development and implementation of sea ice and snow angular distribution models (ADMs) that convert CERES observed solar radiances to fluxes. His current research focus is on radiation and climate of the cryosphere.
