John F. Galantowicz

Dr. Galantowicz is an AER Senior Scientist and group manager for Land Surface Remote Sensing. He has over 20 years experience in earth system observation and modeling, with research interests including surface water, soil moisture, land surface temperature, vegetation, snowpack, terrain freeze/thaw state, sea ice, aerosols, clouds, and climate impacts. He leads the development team for the AER Respond™ tornado and wildfire monitoring services and he is Principal Investigator on NASA-funded projects investigating the changing extent of inundated land areas and their role in greenhouse gas emissions. He also leads research on incorporating weather impacts probabilities in social analytics. Dr. Galantowicz is a member of the American Geophysical Union and the American Meteorological Society and a Senior Member in the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society. He has published and presented more than 30 refereed journal articles and technical conference papers. A scientist at AER since 1997, he received his Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering and Atmospheric, Oceanic, and Space Sciences from the University of Michigan.
