JCET and GPHI members at Sun-Climate Symposium

In mid-May 2022, the Sun-Climate Symposium 2022 was held in Madison, WI. Since 2002, this symposium has been a NASA-sponsored multidisciplinary, international science meeting. This year, the science theme was "Improved Climate-Record Reconstructions from Solar Variability and Earth System Observations". 

Presenters from JCET, GPHI, and GSFC included Jae Lee (UMBC/613), Sergio DeSouza-Machado (UMBC), Vanderlei Martins (UMBC), Bob Leamon (UMBC/672), and Steve Platnick (GSFC/610). Dr. Martins and Dr. Platnick both presented invited talks. Each scientist gave an oral presentation and showed strong support of climate data records and future missions on solar and terrestrial measurements.

Jae Lee: "Non-Gaussian Distribution of TOA SW Flux as Observed by MISR and CERES";

Robert Leamon: "The Solar Cycle Clock: Prediction of F10.7, EUV Irradiance, and the Last X-flare of Solar Cycle 25";

Sergio DeSouza-Machado: "Satellite Hyperspectral Infrared Climate Time Series Combining AIRS and CrIS";

Vanderlei Martins: "Current and future measurements of aerosol and cloud properties with the HARP family of Multi-Angle Imaging Polarimeters", invited talk; and,

Steve Platnick: "Time Series Analysis of the NASA MODIS and VIIRS Cloud Products", invited talk.
