Dr. Andrew Heidinger's research at NOAA is focused primarily on cloud remote sensing using imagers. His projects include the development of new algorithms for operational satellites (AVHRR and GOES). In addition, he is involved with projects developing new remote sensing techniques and radiative transfer models for advanced sensors (VIIRS and ABI). He is also interested in satellite calibration and analysis of long term imager data sets.
Dr. Heidinger is stationed at the Cooperative Institute of Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS) at the Space Science and Engineering Center (SSEC) at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. He received his Ph.D. from Colorado State University in 1998. His Ph.D. research was focused on using measurements in the A-band of oxygen to perform nadir sounding of clouds and aerosol. Dr. Heidinger also serves as an adjunct professor in the AOS department at the University of Wisconsin
