David Duncan

Postdoctoral Researcher, Department of Space, Earth and Environment, Microwave and Optical Remote Sensing

David Duncan is a postdoctoral researcher focusing on passive microwave measurements from satellite platforms. To maximize the useful information from satellites, we need to account for the calibration and all possible errors of the measurements. In addition, accurate modeling of photons traveling through the atmosphere at microwave frequencies is required to back out the composition of the atmosphere. Properly characterized, these data can answer fundamental questions about the Earth system, such as how much it rains over high latitude oceans or quantifying atmospheric ice content.
